POST-MATCH | We got the game we expected - Warne

3 December 2021

Paul Warne reflects on another win - this time in the Emirates FA Cup - over Stockport County...

"We got the game that we expected. We knew it was going to be really tough.

"Fair play to Dave [Challinor], Stockport and all of their fans.They made it a real cup evening.

"We didn't play at our fluid best but how much of that was us and how much of that was the opposition? They didn't let us play at our best.

"I thought their wing backs played really well to neutralise ours and we didn't get enough crosses into the box.

"We didn't win enough second balls in midfield either really.

"I think you could see what I thought of the game when I was putting Joe Mattock on as wing back and I changed my sitting midfielder to Haks because I felt like we were hanging on for the last few minutes.

"I thought we defended pretty well in fairness.

"I think if we'd have got a second goal, the game would have felt a lot more comfortable. We had patches of it and had a few one-on-ones second half where we should have took the second goal, but at 1-0 against any opposition is difficult.

"Like I said, I thought they were really good."
