FA Cup Reaction

Last updated : 12 January 2005 By Bournemouth Co-Ordinator
Speaking to BBCi, Sean O'Driscoll is quoted as saying: "We weren't firing on all cylinders but we did enough to win the game. It's fantastic to be in the fourth round, as you don't often get that kind of excitement in the lower leagues. Brian Laws at Scunthorpe said he was in an electrical shop when he heard they'd drawn Chelsea, so I'm going to spend tomorrow afternoon in Dixons!".

After their cup exit, Ian Rush, Chester City manager, was quoted on BBCi as saying: "We've made one of the best footballing sides in the league above us look ordinary - in the first 10 minutes, we caught them out a little bit. We had the chances to win the game - although two mistakes cost us two goals you've got to take the positives. Sometimes you need a bit of luck in the Cup - we didn't get it and Bournemouth did, but hopefully they can get a big club in the next round".

AFC Bournemouth will be ball number 25 in the Fourth Round Draw, which will be live on BBC2, Sky Sports News and BBC Radio Five Live.
