O'Neill 'disappointed' at cup exit

Sunderland manager Martin O'Neill says he is disappointed at his side's elimination from the Capital One Cup at the hands of local rivals Middlesbrough.

The Black Cats were beaten 1-0 at the Stadium of Light courtesy of Scott McDonald's first-half strike.

After the match, O'Neill said: "It was an opportunity for us to get into the quarter-finals of the competition.

"We didn't play well enough, and we didn't deserve to go through."
