FA CUP REACTION: The Managers' Speak

FA CUP REACTION: The Managers' Speak

Histon Manager Steve Fallon and Swindon Town manager Maurice Malpas give their thoughts after Histon's shock victory over Swindon Town at the Glassworld Stadium.

'It's a fantastic day for us. We started well and went on to thoroughly deserve the win.

'Some of our players showed today that they are capable of playing at a higher level and against a higher opposition so that will give us a lot of confidence going into the week.

'It's all going well at the moment and we have to keep that going in our game against Kettering next Saturday.'

Histon Manager Steve Fallon

'We went to sleep at the set-piece and we paid the price for that. We knew what the game would be like, that was made clear to the players.

'Histon were direct and we never handled it. We didn't do enough to win the game and didn't take it by the scruff of the neck.

'Their keeper had one or two saves to make but we didn't push Histon hard enough.

'It was an FA Cup tie and we didn't put in a performance worthy of making it to the second round.

'I am embarrassed by the result. The players seemed to go out there and wait for things to happen.

Swindon Town Manager Maurice Malpas
