Yates: We've Done Ourselves Proud

7 January 2013

Mark Yates is pleased with the way his side conducted themselves against Premier League opposition

Mark Yates speaking to the media following this evening's FA Cup clash with Everton:

"We kept going and showed a lot of quality at times and passed the ball well. We're a really good side and they know we were in the game. Our players can learn a lot from it so they can be proud of their performance and their efforts. Now we've got the rest of the season to get to where we want to get to.

"Scott (Brown) has made two saves, literally. One from the free kick and one from the shot by Naismith, but apart from that he didn't have a chance with anything. It was great to see the respect Everton gave the FA Cup. It shows the quality within the club and of the manager and the quality in their squad.

"You have to learn from games like this massively. We've done ourselves proud and we competed. We started off fantastically well. I was really pleased with the first twelve minutes. They got the ball in the back of the net from the first time they got anywhere near our penalty box but that's what happens against good sides."
