Rovers relief for Hutchings

04 Jan 2009 - 12:45:02

Derby County's caretaker boss Chris Hutchings was relieved to see his side narrowly avoid an FA Cup third round shock at Forest Green Rovers.

A late Steve Davies penalty gave the Rams a 4-3 victory at the New Lawn, after their non-league hosts had led 2-0 and 3-2 earlier on in the game.

Hutchings admitted: "We were very lucky to go in at half-time 2-2, but we kept going at it right to the death and we scored the penalty.

"I suppose it was a classic cup tie with lots of goals and tackles and a sending-off for the penalty.

"There are always surprises in the FA Cup and Forest Green are a good side. I'd like to say full credit to them.

"In the second half we created three or four good chances before the goal, but didn't take them and they made sure they took the chances they got.

"It was a good, honest cup tie and I'm glad we stayed strong to win it."
