"It's a shame about the way this game went, especially as in the first half we deserved to be in front," said the defender.
"If Marco Di Vaio hadn't scored, if only we'd been more careful, then we certainly would've taken the lead with the strikers we've got.
"I must say the situation is very different from last year, though. There is a unity in the locker room and we're all working in the same direction.
"It's not an easy time for us, as we are lacking enthusiasm and it becomes difficult to get out of the situation."
