POST MATCH: I'm Proud Of My Players

10 August 2016

Town boss Paul Hurst says that his players were disappointed to crash out of the EFL Cup at promotion favourites Derby County, but says that he was proud of his player's efforts.

The Mariners exited the competition after Richard Keogh's 60th-minute goal proved to be the difference between the two sides.

Speaking after the game, Paul Hurst said: "I think there is an element of disappointment down there, despite the fact that they are at a fantastic Championship club that have some excellent players.

"Realistically they have made four changes from Saturday, and if you look who comes in, it's not weakening it too much.  From that point of view we equipped ourselves well.
"We had a couple of chances right at the death from corners. They could have gone anywhere. I thought one was going to go in, didn't quite.

"I think we worked extremely hard to limit them as much as possible. Certainly the first half, what we spoke about, worked pretty well.

"It was a good night – despite the defeat, because I never like to lose whoever I'm playing against and I was very proud of the players' efforts – you've got to be."
