Unexpected draw delights Gary Roberts
Sports Mole talks to Cambridge City manager Gary Roberts following their 0-0 FA Cup draw with League One's MK Dons.

Cambridge City manager Gary Roberts has conceded that he did not expect his side to come away from tonight's FA Cup tie against League One side MK Dons with a positive result.

Four promotions separate part-time City and the Dons but that did not stop Roberts's men from holding out for a 0-0 draw and a replay back at the Stadium:MK a week on Tuesday.

Despite admitting that his side rode their luck, Roberts expressed his delight at the result to Sports Mole after the match.

"Deep down if I were being honest, all I wanted was for the players to show what they can do and come away with a bit of credit. If had been one or 2-0, you couldn't have complained," he said. "As it was, 0-0, wonderland time!"

Roberts also admitted that he will have to make some tactical alterations for the trip to Buckinghamshire.

"We will have to change one or two things without a doubt. We can't concede possession and ground like that and expect to come away with a similar result," he added.

"The players, fans, me and the board are all buzzing. Let's go make some money!"

The Lilywhites are currently 16th in the Southern Premier Division.
