Speaking after the game, Warney said; “There are no easy victories, we knew it was going to be really tough. They were really well-organised, their away support was amazing, the best we’ve ever had here."

"We got the game that we expected. We knew it was going to be really tough. Fair play to Dave Challinor, Stockport and all of their fans.They made it a real cup evening."

"We didn't play at our fluid best but how much of that was us and how much of that was the opposition? They didn't let us play at our best.

“There was a lot of pressure from Stockport, a lot of set-pieces going into our box.

“We just needed that second goal, that would have settled us down a bit. The last 10 minutes we were hanging on.

"I think if we'd have got a second goal, the game would have felt a lot more comfortable. We had patches of it and had a few one-on-ones second half where we should have took the second goal, but at 1-0 against any opposition is difficult.

"Like I said, I thought they were really good."

"I think you could see what I thought of the game when I was putting Joe Mattock on as wing back and I changed my sitting midfielder to Haks because I felt like we were hanging on for the last few minutes.

"I thought we defended pretty well in fairness.

“In the end I’m really pleased with the result but I’m not that over the moon with the performance.”
