U's BOSS Aidy Boothroyd admitted his side “weren't very good” last night - but he won't be over-reacting to the defeat.

It was the first time since the 0-0 draw at Southampton in early September that they had failed to score, but while the U's boss was disappointed, he won't be too tough on his players.

“We weren't very good,” he said. “I'm disappointed with the result, but you could see they were running around like they'd won the World Cup at the end.
