Speaking to ITV after the game he said:

"In terms of effort, endeavour and determination you couldn't fault them to a man. Proud? Of course I am. They were magnificent.

"I didn't think the first one was a free-kick and the second goal was a goal-kick not a corner. But it's not the time now to whinge. We are totally disappointed because it could have been one of those memorable FA Cup wins where the underdog goes and wins it."

"On another day we could have won it but in the end we didn't have enough."
