Shrewsbury Town manager Paul Simpson was disgusted by his side's display in the FA Cup first round defeat at Blyth Spartans.
The Shrews slumped to a 3-1 loss in the north-east after producing a performance that embarrassed Simpson.
The Town boss said: "I don't know how to explain it. It's one of the lowest points of my career and I'm not taking anything away from Blyth Spartans.
"We didn't deserve to get anything from the game and it was a performance which disgusted me.
"It embarrassed me as a manager, and we've played like that in front of our fans who've come such a long way to watch us.
"They're two divisions below us and yet we've put on a performance that was almost shameful."
