Devastated McDermott Faces The Press

Devastated McDermott Faces The Press

Birmingham coach Terry McDermott was left to talk to the press after the defeat at home to Leeds United in the FA Cup last night.

And he was feeling downbeat as the realisation of what he had just seen Blues throw away after taking the lead began to sink in.

It was all looking good for City after taking the lead through Wade Elliott and at the time, the visitors didn't look to be much of a threat.

But they managed to pull themselves level with a goal from Ross McCormack and when a penalty was awarded to Leeds for a handball by Robinson after much deliberation, El-Hadji Diouf made sure that the visitors progressed.

McDermott told Sky Sports: 'Of course we're disappointed, we're very disappointed with the second-half performance, no one more so than the manager.

'It is a big disappointment because I'm sure the fans would have loved to have seen Tottenham playing here. We're disappointed. I think we're a bit more than disappointed actually; we're devastated really because we wanted a big game like that.

'Obviously it would have helped the club as well financially, but it's not to be.'

It should have been clark in front of the cameras. I accept that they couldn't play Butland and I accept that there is no money for him to put out a decent looking side. But at least have the balls to face the press after, no doubt he would have been on gloating if we had hung on for the win.
