West Bromwich Albion defender Gareth McAuley admits that he is extremely disappointed over his side's FA Cup exit at the hands of Queens Park Rangers.

West Bromwich Albion defender Gareth McAuley has admitted that he is bitterly disappointed over his side's FA Cup exit.

The Baggies crashed out of the competition in their third-round replay against Queens Park Rangers at The Hawthorns, as Jay Bothroyd scored the only goal of the game.

McAuley told the club's official website: "We're not happy to go out. We weren't brilliant but I don't think the performance deserved for us to get beaten.

"Rob Green was fantastic in goal for them and conceding from a set piece to lose a game is disappointing because it's something you prepare yourself for beforehand.

"But we've lost a few on the bounce now so we've got to dig deep and the senior guys in the squad have to get everyone together and get everyone positive because we have a very important game on Saturday."

Steve Clarke's side host Aston Villa on Saturday in the Premier League and are currently seventh in the table after playing 22 games this season.
