TOWN boss Paul Hurst was disappointed to exit the FA Cup to a late, late strike tonight, but he says that his players can be proud of themselves.
He said: “Ultimately we've gone down to a quality strike, which has ended up being the difference over two games. The lads can be very proud of themselves. The supporters have seen a very good performance from us, and the longer the game went on, I felt that we got on top of it for large parts.
“"They set the standard and I was proud of them.
"It was a difficult one though, because there was certainly a bit more than a tinge of disappointment that we've gone out after a performance like that."
And Paul confirmed that Jon-Paul Pittman's injury might keep him out for some time.
Paul said: He dislocated his shoulder. I'm going to see exactly what's wrong but it certainly wouldn't be a massive surprise if he's out for a couple of months. That seems to be the luck that the lad has.”
Looking ahead to Saturday's National League clash with Dover . . .
He concluded: It will be a tough enough game as it is any way. They've had a free midweek, we put in hell of a lot of effort, so it is important that we recover properly.”
