David Moyes was pleased that his Manchester United side managed to grind out a narrow 1-0 win over Real Sociedad at Old Trafford on Wednesday to move closer to a place in the Champions League knockout phase. The decisive goal came after two minutes, the hapless Inigo Martinez diverting into his own net after the excellent Wayne Rooney had struck the post. Both sides hit the woodwork thereafter, Sociedad on two occasions, but unlike in Saturdays 1-1 draw with Southampton, United were spared the pain of shipping a late equaliser. It was a job well done, a good performance, Moyes said. I was frustrated we couldnt kill them off because we had the same on Saturday, with a goal in the last minute. Today we had that feeling around us, but if we had scored five or six today it wouldnt have been out of place. We had an awful lot of opportunities and didnt finish it off. We gave away a couple of free- kicks on the edge of the box, and I was concerned about that. A couple of the decisions didnt quite go our way tonight, but it was a good result. We had to win the game at home.
