No motherboard tray on case

Hello,

So I recently bought the following case:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0064KJR6S
(a cheapo one without stupid things like lights)

It has just arrived along with all the components and... there is no tray or plate to put the motherboard on!

I've never built a computer before that has a μATX (microATX) form factor, is this just one of its idiosyncrasies? Or is it the manufacturer's fault - i.e. should it be returned?

Cheers.

it should have one, probably not removeable, but there should be one. although you only need material where the standoffs sit, so it could be a frame rather than a tray.

^what they said, case size shouldn't matter so much as the design in general. Does it not just have an extra "layer" to tuck cables behind as easily?
