Tom Cleverly has urged Manchester United to move on from a disappointing 2-2 draw with Cardiff City despite admitting the Red Devils dropped a “massive” two points.

The defending champions appeared to be heading towards a 2-1 win thanks to Patrice Evra’s header after former United striker Frazier Campbell had cancelled out Wayne Rooney’s opener.

However, Cardiff substitute Kim Bo-Kyung netted a dramatic late equaliser to rescue a point for the home side and deny Untied the chance to move into the top four.

And Cleverly says United are desperate to move on as quickly as possible from the disappointment ahead of their Champions League clash against Bayer Leverkusen.

“It would have been a massive three points had we been able to hold on, especially because of the teams around us playing one another,” Cleverley told United’s website.

“Everyone in the dressing room is very disappointed – the result means as much to the players as it does the fans,” he admitted. “It definitely feels like two points dropped, but all credit to Cardiff, they played well and we weren’t at our best.

“We’ve got a really important game coming up on Wednesday and we know we need to get our heads up and make sure that we qualify.

“It’s good we’ve got that game because you want to try and get a rhythm going and bounce back from a disappointing result. It was a pity that after the
Arsenal game we had to wait two weeks to play again so Wednesday can’t come quick enough for us.”
