Man Utd defender Vidic: Fulham draw bad result

Nemanja Vidic says Manchester United's 2-2 draw at Fulham was a "bad result".

Brede Hangeland's last-minute header denied United a valuable victory and, while he admitted to widespread disappointment at dropping two points, Vidic is keen to take the setback on the chin and move on.

"It's a bad result, especially when we had a good result in the last minutes of the game," the Serbian told MUTV. "A draw is difficult to take and we feel real disappointment about what happened in the end, but I hope we take some points from the goal we lost, and it doesn't happen again.

"It's hard to take. I think we would have been happy with the result - if not the performance - if we had won, but there are definitely some points to take from the game. The goal we lost at the end was a shame and we probably need to improve at set-pieces."

While a late concession of two points will inevitably provoke frustration, only two games have passed in 2010/11, and Vidic is already looking forward to next weekend's visit of West Ham United.

"We had a draw against Newcastle two years ago," he recalled. "We've had some bad results at the beginning of seasons, and we don't want to get down after this result.

"It's hard to take because we had the result and as a team we have experience. We shouldn't allow them to score again two minutes from the end. That's why we're disappointed, but I hope in the next game we will be stronger."
