“I thought the performance was very good, but the result wasn't so great, We set up the way we set up and we knew how going to create chances. We worked on it all week and we worked on how to stop their play and frustrate them."
“We were well prepared for this game and the lads were really well motivated. I said to them beforehand that I thought it was the best I'd ever seen a team warm-up."
“We created three really good chances and the one right at the end would have got us a good point on the road and would have been a nice little bit of sugar for us. It was a really good performance away from home and I definitely don't think we deserved to lose."
“I think our season was summed up by Semi's chance late on. I think that was synonymous really in that we had that little bit of luck but couldn't follow through with it.”
“I thought they were excellent and I told them before the game that there are 10 cup finals left and this was the first one, I asked them to just go out and prove to people that they can play at this level and if I'm honest, I thought we were the better team."
“Unfortunately I've come out to do the press again and it's on the back of a defeat. You've seen me loads of times now and I'm not in tears or holding on to you for support because I was really proud of the players and it makes us look forward to the next game.”
