TOWN manager Paolo Di Canio spoke to the media after his side's cup defeat to Macclesfield Town.

On the result...

It was a very bad performance and we didn’t play to the levels. Today we had a few chances in the first half but we didn’t take them. I warned the players that this game would be difficult. You can teach the young players but the older players – it’s difficult to change the mentality. I said this would be a difficult game and I was right. I want to change the mentality here. In some way they did well until a few weeks ago, but I cannot accept with this kind of attitude.

On the red card...

I don’t want to judge the decision. The problem is that Aden Flint has been booked and sent off in the last few games. In the second half we didn’t challenge on the ground and he made a bad tackle. I don’t want to judge whether it was a red card, but it destroyed the last half an hour. Perhaps it looked worse than it was but we have to respect the rules.

On the goals...

The first goal was from long distance and finished in the net but my goalkeeper should have saved it. It was a fantastic strike from distance with precision. It is typical to strike from distance in England.
