We Didn't Deserve To Lose - Magnusson

Hordur Magnusson does not believe City deserved to lose to Birmingham City as they fell to a narrow defeat at St Andrew’s.

Despite producing a dominant second-half performance in which City could have scored two or three had it not been for Tomasz Kuszczak’s man of the match performance, Che Adams’ goal nine minutes from time decided the outcome.

The defeat sees City drop to tenth in the Sky Bet Championship, three points outside the top six, yet the former Juventus man believes there are still positives he and his team-mates can take from their performance in the Midlands.

“It is always difficult to go into the dressing room when you lose, especially when we were the better team,” the 23-year-old told Bristol City Player HD.

“We created loads of chances, but unfortunately we couldn’t get the ball across the line. It is really disappointing to lose against a Birmingham side that we were better than.

“We defended well throughout, but they got the corner which we failed to defend and their striker got a great touch to turn it in.

“I thought we were confident in our approach for 80 minutes and it was extremely disappointing to concede. It was not a fair result because we played really well.

“We played as a team, as we have in every other match. We were really good, we created a lot of chances, but we just couldn’t score. The result was not a true reflection of our performance.

“The Championship is a very tough league. There are many strong teams and anyone can beat anyone due to the number of games within the season. We just need to concentrate on our individual performances and keep fit.

“Sometimes results go against you, but we need to stay positive and look for areas of our game which we can improve upon in preparation for our next game.”

City were backed by 1,774 supporters in a sold out away end at St Andrew’s and the Icelandic international was full of gratitude for their continued support.

“I am always happy about the supporters. They are really good and strong fans," he added. 

“They support us if we win or lose and they are helping us a lot. They are one of us, and we must now get a result, which I know is going to come.”
