Manchester United centre back Nemanja Vidic has criticised his side's defensive display against Hull City yesterday and admitted they cannot afford a repeat performance.

The champions went into a 4-1 lead against the Tigers at Old Trafford but two late goals by the visitors ensured a very nervy finish as United held on for the win.

Vidic, who scored United's fourth goal of the afternoon, admitted his team could not play like that again. According to the Manchester Evening News, he said simply: “That must not happen again.â€

A Bernand Mendy goal pulled the game back to 4-2 before a Geovanni penalty made it 4-3 after Rio Ferdinand was adjudged to have fouled Mendy and Vidic admitted the Red Devils were hanging on at the end.

“Nobody could believe it. I wouldn't say the last few minutes were hard, but we were under pressure,†said the Serbian, “We should not be losing goals like that. There is no need to worry but we have to think about it because we must erase the mistakes.â€

Vidic also denied accusations that his side had become complacent in the game after taking a three goal lead.

“We knew Hull were a good team,†he explained, “They have surprised Arsenal already this season and they have 20 points, which says something about them.â€

The result moves United ahead of Hull in the table and they now sit third, five points off the top with a game in hand.
