Both Sides Of The FA Cup Fence

Both Sides Of The FA Cup Fence

Souness: 'I don't put myself under pressure, not at all. I'm a very, very fortunate man. I've got older children, a young child, I've got a great deal going on in my life.

'As much as people would like to think they can put me under the cosh, I'm pretty good at resisting it because whatever is being said to me, or whatever will be said to me in the future, has already been said. Whatever people call me, I've already been called, so I regard myself as a very fortunate man.

'Pressure? No. We are just delighted to be in the next round. We knew when this draw was made that this was always going to be a very, very difficult game for us, as it would have been for anyone coming here.

'We felt we should have had a penalty in the first half when Peter Ramage was pulled down, but the overall feeling is relief because you don't want to be coming to places like this and getting beaten when you are a big club because every year when the fourth round comes around, you are going to be mentioned.'

Cheltenham boss John Ward was justifiably proud of his team's display.

Ward: 'Odejayi gave them problems throughout the afternoon. He's strong, he's quick, and it really is his first full season in league football. Although he's as big and strong as he is and he's 23, he was still playing bits and pieces last year, but he's played regularly this year.

'We knew we could get to places, but we had to be calm when we got there. I've just heard him on TV say it took a bobble, but then he would do, wouldn't he?

'There was about 17, 18 minutes to play and you think 'Go on, put that one in and who knows?'. But we are edging on the side of 'who knows?'. It's a pity.'
