It's wins we need - Keane

ROY Keane admitted that today's 1-1 draw against Middlesbrough was a fair result, but he was again left frustrated by a 15th draw from 28 games.

New boy Daryl Murphy scored within 22 seconds of his debut, only for the visitors to grab an equaliser through David Wheater's header just after the hour mark.

"No one can feel comfortable at just 1-0 up. I was OK with the players today. I thought they did OK," explained Keane.

"But we again didn't take our chances. It's what goes on in the box that is what life is all about.

"It's wins we need. Again there were a lot of ifs and buts. It might be different next season.

"If half the draws we've had were defeats, and the others were wins, then we'd be further up the table.

"We have now got four away games, so it's not going to get any easier," added Keane.
