Hodgson said afterwards, "I thought we weathered the early storm well. We controlled an opponent in very good form.
"Eventually they scored a good goal, but the second goal was a little unfortunate as we were starting to grow into the game and looking a little bit likely ourselves. Then it was very difficult for us to get back into it.
"It's an unfortunate spell we find ourselves in, but I can't say I'm disappointed with our performance."
