Lukas Jutkiewicz fired the Championship side ahead inside the opening 10 minutes before Marcus Carver levelled matters on 40 with Piero Mingoia snatching Accrington's winner eight minutes from time.

A disappointed Mowbray said: "We are out because we didn't take our opportunities and they took theirs.

"And there were plenty of opportunities. The bottom line is you have to stick your chances away and we didn't do that. You are only as good as your strikers.

"You can't have that much domination in a match and not score but we will quickly move on and focus on the next game."

His opposite number at Accrington, James Beattie, added: "They threw everything at us and we put in a magnificent performance. I'm proud of them.

"We rode our luck at times, there's no denying that. They had a lot of chances and we did well. We put our bodies on the line. We showed commitment.

"There were some real heroic performances out there. I'm not going to single individuals out but they know who they are.

"It was a massive win for the club, financially it could be a great boost for us, especially if we get a lucrative draw in the next round."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
