Manager after FA Cup exitGraham Alexander was left disappointed with his side’s performance this afternoon as they bowed out of the FA Cup to Cambridge United.
Town had substitute Jamie Proctor sent off for a straight red card after lashing out Richard Tait with twenty minutes to go, before Kwesi Appiah’s late goal was enough for The U’s to progress.
After the game, the manager said: “We didn’t play well enough to win it. Conditions in the first half were hard to play in and we had to defend spells of pressure.
“We got through that intact and strong, and then in the second half we go on and look to win the game.
“We make some positive substitutions half way through the second half, but things go against us and the red card has made it difficult.
“The lads have been superb all season, even in the games we haven’t won, and the performances have been right up there, but today it wasn’t.
“The fans were great today and we haven’t lived up to the standard we set for them.
“I’ve always been honest and upfront and today we weren’t good enough.
“It’s another long journey for our supporters, and it’s disappointing for them as well. I know they all wanted a good cup run and to see the team win.”
