Reds boss Simon Davey gave his thoughts to the clubs official site after today's FA Cup Third Round defeat at West Ham United.

Simon said: "I am not disappointed with our performance but I am disappointed with the result. It does not help when you have a settled side and then have to make five changes. I thought we came here and passed the ball well at times but we gave them two goals in the first half.

"At 1-0 I felt we were always in the game and we were creating chances and getting shots away. When you concede a goal like that just before half time it is always hard and it changes your team talk. It was an uphill task but I felt we went about that well before giving them a third.

"We went about it in the right way here today and it is unfortunate.

"The Championship is a tough division and we are in a position now where we are eight or nine points off the play offs and the relegation zone. We are looking up and our form in the last ten or 12 matches has been good. We want to wipe this result out of our system as soon as possible and get back to business against Southampton next weekend.

"Last year our cup form was a distraction to us and we were in the same situation as we are in now. We dipped last year and we have to make sure that does not happen. We always want to win every game and we are very disappointed not to have done that here today. We are disappointed to be out of the cup and we now want to climb the league".
