Clough Disappointed With His Side After PNE Win

Clough Disappointed With His Side After PNE Win
Sheffield United manager Nigel Clough was disappointed with his side after they were beaten at home by Preston, ruining their chances of playing Man United in the next round.

The Blades reached the semi finals of the competition last season and all concerned with the club were hoping to see the feat repeated, albeit they would have to beat Man United in round five.

Instead Clough had to watch his side surrender a lead and in the end they were beaten comprehensively thanks to goals from Paul Gallagher and Paul Huntington.

Clough told reporters after the game: 'I'm bitterly disappointed. For Manchester United, the biggest club in the country, to come to town as a League One club was a massive incentive but we didn't play like that was the carrot at the end of the tie.

'Maybe we thought the tie was over when we brought them back here but that is never the case against a team like Preston.

'They thoroughly deserved their victory, we were fortunate to be 1-0 up at half-time.'
