The Tykes secured a place in the fifth round with a 1-0 victory at Hull thanks to a 70th minute goal from Chris Dagnall.

Flitcroft, who has presided over three wins in five games since taking over as boss, said: "It's a great feeling to win in the FA Cup, and we have that feel-good factor and momentum.

"Our form is down to a group that wants to be part of something special. In spite of where we are in the league, we have an opportunity to put things right.

"I love the FA Cup and everything about it. It's a special competition.

"Some of the players in the dressing room have great FA Cup memories, and the fans will go back down the M62 with their own memories. I want to go as far as we can in the FA Cup as I'm a massive believer in it.

"We were really poor in the first half. Hull dominated and deserved to go in at the break two or three goals up.

"But I said to the players at half time that in the second half, when we do get a good spell, we need to score.

"Out of possession we were very good. We were resilient and determined. In possession we were not very good and there was a lack of quality, and we do need to improve."

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.
