Manager Chris Coleman was gutted after seeing his Coventry City knocked out of the FA Cup by Portsmouth in a dramatic Ricoh Arena clash.
The Sky Blues were eventually undone in the final minute of extra-time of the third round replay, with Coleman saying afterwards: "We're gutted, the players are devastated. Overall I think we did enough to take it to penalties.
"I thought we played very well in the first half and could have got another goal.
"Portsmouth were better in the second half and pushed us back. Extra-time it's even-stevens really.
"To lose like that, it's difficult to know what to say to the players. It's a tough way to lose a game and get knocked out of the cup."
