Doncaster Rovers boss Sean O'Driscoll was full of praise for the fighting spirit shown by his side in their narrow 1-0 FA Cup third round win at Brentford.
A late James O'Connor goal settled the issue at Griffin Park and sent Rovers through to a fourth round tie at Derby County.
O'Driscoll told the club's official website: "I thought that, under the conditions, we did all the things that we had to do.
"We are a side that like to play a certain way, but I think that they showed a different side to their character and dug in.
"I don't think it was a game for the purists. We didn't want to come here as a Championship side who weren't prepared to mix it, which I thought that we did.
"I'd have settled for a draw, but it was nice to get the winner."
