“I thought maybe the scoreline flattered them a little bit, although our keeper has made a couple of good saves we’ve missed a few chances up our end as well.
“We saw a League One team being clinical, maybe we saw them just a little bit better in all departments than us. Grant McCann (Peterborough manager) was really aggressive with his attacking style.
"We knew we had to keep their attacking players quiet, and maybe when we got it back to 2-2 we didn’t quite do that, but I can’t criticise the players.”

“I knew when I first got the job how important it was to have a cup run. Three games have gone to replays and you can tell how much it means to everyone, but next year we’re aiming to go one step further.
“The FA Cup run has been a great experience. We’ve learned a lot from it and we’ll be back next year to go again and to go one stage further!”
