Chris Dagnall was on target 20 minutes from time to send the Tykes through to the last 16 and allow the Tigers to concentrate on trying to clinch promotion from the Championship.

Hull manager Bruce said: "We have 18 games left in the Championship now without any distractions but it's always disappointing to go out of the Cup.

"If you get a favourable draw, before you know it you can be in with a chance.

"In the first half I thought we played well enough but unfortunately missed two or three really good chances and that's been our Achilles heel.

"We had several opportunities and Barnsley just had the one - but they took it."

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.
