"The team are really disappointed. We had high hopes of going through to the next round, but it wasn't to be.

"We started well, we were closing down space, they were struggling to find their front men and we had a few chances which might have changed the game if we'd scored.

"They got the penalty and that made it harder for us, and getting the second goal on the stroke of half-time and then the third made it an uphill battle.

"We still only needed one goal and had to keep trying – we kept fighting till the end but got no reward."
