Forest Deserved To Win - Hughes

Last updated : 04 January 2009 By Sam
The Championship side cruised into the fourth round with a 3-0 win at Eastlands much to the disappointment of the City boss.

"We are bitterly disappointed with the level of performance that we produced today," Hughes said.

"Nottingham Forest fully deserved to win.

"They showed more desire and energy in their play. They forced us into errors and took their chances.

"I didn't expect the other team to show more desire but I am just being honest.

"I am not telling anyone anything they didn't see themselves. I have known the frailties in the team from day one."
