On loan defender Donervorn Daniels has admitted it was very much a bittersweet afternoon for him in our League Cup loss to Dundee United.

Having come in from West Bromwich Albion, he scored on his debut for the club and wasn’t far off getting himself a second in the game, so speaking to the Official Site following the full time whistle, he said he was a case of mixed feelings for him.

‘It was a bittersweet afternoon for me at Hampden. It was very frustrating. The goal was an incredible feeling. It is difficult to describe how good it felt but in the end we did not get the victory that I thought we deserved. It was gut wrenching. I felt as a back six, including Jacko we were strong, but there were individual mistakes.’

Daniels goes on to say that he was obviously ‘over the moon’ to have scored, but he would gladly have swapped that for a place in the final ‘all day long’ and he knows defeat in the end was difficult for the team to take, but they simply have to bounce back from that disappointment now.

With his second effort deemed to have been not over the line, and Adam Rooney’s disallowed goal, that just made it more disappointing and frustrated as he said he felt we had done enough.

There were obvious positives for the youngster though.

‘It’s definitely the biggest game of my career so far. I knew it was going to be a tough challenge and although I was prepared physically and mentally, I could not have done it without the support of the fans. The support has been incredible. I would like to thank the fans for giving me so much love early on.’
