Video & Quotes from Tom Pett after the 0-0 draw at home to Reading...

  • Pett on their only being one team that looked like winning...

“That is how it felt out there, you have got to be aware that they have good players out there - they are a Championship club.

“But we backed ourselves, we had chances and looking back on them, maybe we should have done a bit better with them.

“Like the gaffer said to us, we are more than happy with how we played and we are still thinking we could have gone on and won it.

“To us there was only one team that was going to win that game and that was us. So that obviously gives us a lot of confidence for this Saturday and going on to when we play them the next Tuesday."

  • Pett on the half-time team talk...

“Their gaffer probably gave them a bit of rollicking at half-time, but like our gaffer said to us, we are 45 minutes wiser to what they are about.

“They were only going to play the same way, they are not going to change how they play so we didn’t really have to change much.

“It was more well done, keep it going, don’t get sloppy, it is easy to be so concentrated for 45 minutes and then get sloppy and pat yourselves on the back.

“But we didn’t do that, we kept on battling, kept on pressing and should have got our rewards."

  • Pett on being in the hat for Monday's draw...

“I am more than happy with the draw and we are still in the hat for the next round.

“Any team is going to be happy to be in the next round, so obviously we will look at who we may get and it might add a bit of extra spice to the replay.

“We are obviously disappointed not to win, but we are happy with how we played and we will go to their place full of confidence.

“We know we are now 90 minutes wiser to what they are about, so we can obviously get back to the drawing board and see how we can improve on that and look forward to the game.

“We will just want to win that game and we will see who we get."
