Gary McCann has given his reaction to the FA Cup defeat at Dorchester on Saturday afternoon.

He said, "I am despondent, disappointed, dejected and frustrated. The rain made the pitch very difficult, and it affected the way that we played. In the first half we struggled to get our passing right and it was a million miles from where we have been in recent weeks.

"We had a good chat at half-time and I think we were much better in the second half. We were on top for the first 15 minutes, and the goal we conceded was against the run of play and of our own making.

"After that, if you had said to me that we would have so many chances and not scored I would have laughed at you. If we had taken even half of our chances after going behind we would have won by three goals.

"Our goals to chances ration is nowhere near where I want it to do be. We have been creating more goals than we have done in years, but our conversion rate of these chances needs to be improved.

"Also our set pieces were nowhere near effective enough, even though we had a couple of chances from corners."
