Yeovil Town manager Russell Slade talked to BBC Somerset reporter Pete Simson after his side had drawn 1-1 with Stockport County in the FA Cup on November 8th 2008.

RS: I think it burst into life during the second half. We had that set-back of the goal, which was their only real opportunity I felt, or their main opportunity in the game really. They did have one opportunity in the second half, but it was a poor effort. In terms of chances, I thought we had the greater chances throughout the game, but in the second half I thought we piled on the pressure. I suppose in many ways Jim Gannon will feel that the sending off therefore was a bit of a changing point in the game in that the pressure was inevitably going to be on them. But I thought we got the ball into their box, and Skivo could have got himself a double today. He's had one spin off his foot with a volley, and there was one very good first half save from their keeper, along with another very good save in the second half from their keeper. As far as my keeper is concerned, I don't think he's had to make a real save all afternoon. So that shows that we dominated in parts. Stockport are a decent side but we couldn't quite put them to bed.

PS: Did you see what happened for their sending off?

RS: I didn't. All I saw was Nathan on the floor, but I spoke to Nathan and he said he was punched.

PS: In a way it changed the game, but after that Stockport just put 10 men behind the ball and they did prove quite tricky to break down. You had the better chances when it was 11 against 11.

RS: It was not just 10 men, it was 10 very tall men. So it is very difficult to win battles. But I felt as though we created enough for a cup tie to win a football match today. Maybe we should have nicked through today 2-1. That would have maybe been a fair result, but sometimes football is not fair. But we're in the hat again, and we'll live to fight another day, and more importantly in many ways, we keep a certain momentum going. We've not lost in five games now. We're looking stronger, we're looking more resilient. We had a set-back but we came back from it and we looked as though we might go on to win the game. That wasn't to be, but they are a good quality set-up right now.

PS: Any thoughts on Gifton Noel-Williams on his debut?

RS: Yes, he did OK, and I was pleased that we got him to about 70 minutes. I thought I'd make the change then and look at the bigger picture. We've got Leicester on Tuesday. I thought he did great. I thought he was holding the ball up for us and he was a strength for us. He can only get stronger and better.

PS: All in all, entertainment wise, it was a good cup tie, wasn't it, for the crowd?

RS: I thought it was a good cup tie. I heard someone shout something as I came off, but honestly! Those types just as well stay at home - that was unbelievable. But I thought it was a good cup tie and I thought that in the main the crowd appreciated it. We had a right go at it, and we tried to go through at the first attempt, but at least we have another attempt.

PS: A tough replay up at Edgeley Park. That is a long way to go.

RS: Yes, it is. But they are all long, so we are used to that and that won't be a problem.
