|The Potters are by no means the pick of the Championship and during their recent unbeaten run failed to take more than a point of the likes of Barnsley, Plymouth and Hull. Yet their set piece play, fitness and general movement eclipsed us too often for comfort. By the end we seemed physically and emotionally spent, while they looked as if they could have ploughed on - thankfully there was no extra time in this tie.
This was another uninspired performance; however keeping a clean sheet is always pleasing. This was one of those ties that always had the possibility of resulting in an irritating replay – and so it proved.
Arsenal away next?!?
