Striker says the better team won on the night at Griffin Park
Blues striker Barry Corr admitted the better team won following their third-round FA Cup exit to League One side Brentford at Griffin Park last night.
The hosts were on top for most of the game, with Blues ‘keeper Paul Smith’s stunning performance between the sticks the only thing preventing Brentford from winning by a bigger margin.
And Barry, who scored the equaliser for Blues, admits Brentford were a class above on the night.
Said Corr: “Brentford are a really good side, we knew how good a team we were playing having played them twice already this season.
“I thought we could possibly win it, they were on top for the majority of the game then we went and nicked a goal and you think may be.
“That’s the FA Cup though isn’t it, I don’t think we can argue with the result because they were top quality today.
“It could have been more but for Smith in goal, I’m delighted for him to put in such a good performance.”
Corr was also happy to get Blues’ goal, but praised the fans for their support on a cold night at Griffin Park.
He added: “It’s always nice to get a goal but it was disappointing we couldn’t get the result.
“The fans were brilliant, they realised this was a tough game and got behind us despite us being really up against it.
“They were top class and we appreciate them coming out and showing their support.
Blues’ attention is now diverted back to League 2 action on Saturday when Plymouth travel to Roots Hall.
He said: “We go on to Saturday now which is the most important thing for us. It’s our bread and butter and it’s vital we get back to winning ways.”
