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."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
