Manchester United manager David Moyes was left frustrated by another late equaliser as his side drew 2-2 at Cardiff yesterday. United moved up to sixth in the league but they would have returned to the top four had they held on to their lead.

Kim Bo-Kyung came off the bench to scored late on for Cardiff and Moyes said: "I am disappointed. We had it under control with a minute to go but we conceded from a set piece and it cost us.

"We have been on a pretty good run, but that is a blow and we cannot keep dropping points." MORE
