Strachan: 'What's Going On?'

Last updated : 09 November 2009 By Boro Mad

Boro broke with Palace defender Danny Butterfield outnumbered four to one.

But Leroy Lita inexplicably opted not to square the ball as his three unmarked team-mates pleaded for a pass and, having been forced wide by Butterfield, shot harmlessly across goal.

Gordon Strachan: "That was a bit surreal. I just thought 'what's going on'?

 "When you have chances like that and you don't take them you have a problem, luck has nothing to do with it.

"It's frustrating, just like last week against Plymouth when our best player, Adam Johnson, missed a penalty.

"It's frustrating for me, it's frustrating for the players who work so hard and it's frustrating for the fans."
