The Dons dominated Friday's FA Cup first-round tie but Zac Barrett was outstanding in goal for the hosts, with Stephen Gleeson and Luke Chadwick both striking the woodwork.

Harford said: "In all fairness to Cambridge City - fair play to them.

"They set out their stall and defended magnificently - you've got to give them a little bit of credit, their goalkeeper especially, and the back four threw themselves in front of everything.

"We created numerous opportunities and we were never in danger of losing the game but you're always wary of a breakaway goal or a set piece.

"The shape of our team is great and we move the ball around very well but we had a game which, in a way, has typified our season where we haven't finished things off."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
