Rae gives Hughes credit for shock win

Former Sunderland midfielder Alex Rae paid tribute to Notts County striker Lee Hughes after his goal ultimately dumped the Black Cats out of the FA Cup.The 34-year-old's sixth strike in seven games 15 minutes from time put the visitors into a 2-0 lead which the Barclays Premier League side were unable to erase in a late fightback.County assistant boss Rae said: "He's an absolute handful. He has scored six goals in seven games, so he has still got a lot to offer."But it is not just that, his physical presence helps us a lot as well. He gets a lot of flick-ons and he is a handful."
