Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was happy to escape with a goalless draw from Sunday's FA Cup fourth round clash at Cardiff City.
Both sides had chances to win the match but a draw was probably a fair result after a hard-fought encounter at Ninian Park.
"We could do without a replay, 100 per cent, but let's not complain because we play football," said Wenger after the stalemate.
"It's one more game to play. If that's the price we have to pay to stay in the hat, we're happy to do it.
"We are short at the moment and cannot rotate much. I could rest a few players in this game but not as many as I had wanted.
"At 0-0 anything can happen, but I wasn't too worried in the second half.
"Cardiff created more chances in the first half but they didn't really create many in the second.
"They wanted that replay because, when they had an opportunity to cross the ball at the end, they kept it in the corner.
"For them, maybe, it's a good opportunity to have another big game."
