Town’s caretaker boss Anthony Limbrick had a bit of a pre-match injury crisis to contend with in his first game in charge, but he says that is not an excuse.
Speaking after the game, he said:” It was disappointing going out of the cup in the manner that we did. It was difficult before the game. James Hanson was missing with quite a late injury. We thought he would be available to play. Ludvig Öhman also ended up being really sick.
“Losing those two players was difficult for us, but it’s not an excuse. Having said that, I thought we probably just edged it in the first half.
“We wanted to start the second half better than we did. The first goal was a real killer for us on the break. We felt that it was one that we gave them. With the second goal, we were down to ten-men and were going for it. We felt that whoever got the first goal would probably go on to win the game. Unfortunately that wasn’t us.”
Limbrick will also have to do without the services of Moses Ogbu who is sidelined with a knee injury.
