Leeds United boss Gary McAllister was left frustrated by his side's exit from the Carling Cup, following a 2-1 fourth round defeat at Derby County.
The Whites were two goals down after 18 minutes at Pride Park, but hit back to dominate most of the second half, without being able to find an equaliser to take the tie into extra-time.
McAllister said: "I am lost for words really. I passed on my thoughts to the players and I think you can imagine what I was saying to them.
"I am not a massive follower of statistics, but they had four attacks and scored twice.
"Our football was good, but the last thing I wanted was to have to come out after the game and say we played wonderfully well but we are out. That is the case and I am disappointed.
"It was the best they played this season, but it is a cruel game at times and it is about winning."
