“These games are televised because of the chance of a shock and they got exactly what they came here for.

“I’ve got no complaints as were second-best all over the pitch and we should have lost by more in all truth.

“Sometimes in a cup match you can lose to a deflection or have complete domination but the other team score from their only two chances.

“But that wasn’t the case today and I have to dig a bit deeper to get to the bottom of a performance that was completely unacceptable for this football club.

“I need to look at it, analyse it and come up with some solutions. I’ve got my own ideas.

“But I really hope Chorley go on to get a great draw with one of the big clubs away from home because they fully deserved to win.”
