Rosler made six changes to his starting line-up for the southern section quarter-final clash at Roots Hall and he was pleased with the performance, if not the result.

"I am extremely proud of the team I put out," said Rosler.

"With the injuries we currently have, I was happy with the way we started passing the ball and we were very unlucky with the first goal taking a big deflection.

"For the second goal I don't think Kevan Hurst will ever do that again.

"We had three or four big chances before we got the goal back in the second half but overall I cannot fault the players I had on the pitch. We played very well and it is just a testament of the form we are currently in even though we didn't pick up the result we wanted."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
