Flicker on Cup Victory

26 January 2013

'We got the ugly side right'

Reds Manager David Flitcroft gave his thoughts to the press after today's F.A. Cup win at Hull City.

“It’s a great feeling,” said Flitcroft. “I love the F.A. Cup. It’s a special competition.

“I said to the players before the game, when we leave and finish this that’s all we’ve got – memories.

“Out of possession, we were very good. Resilient, determined, courageous. We weren’t fluid enough, we were too loose and there was a lack of quality.

“The ugly side – we got right today in every sense today.
“The closing down, angles and distance cover – I’m pleased with that side of the game because we worked on that all week.

“They did everything they had to do off the ball, but the first half didn’t really reflect what I’m about – I was much more satisfied with the second-half performance.”
