WE MOVE ON - ANDRE

Andre Villas-Boas conceded our Capital One Cup exit at Norwich was 'difficult for everyone', but insisted the squad would move on quickly to prepare for Wigan on Saturday.
We looked in control of Wednesday night’s fourth round tie at Carrow Road.
Having enjoyed the lion’s share of possession and limited the home side to few chances, Gareth Bale’s fine strike put us 1-0 up in the 66th minute.
However, the Canaries completely turned the game around via Alex Tettey’s equaliser that deflected home off Jan Vertonghen in the 83rd minute and then Simeon Jackson’s close-range finish three minutes later.
There was still time for Clint Dempsey to see a last-minute penalty saved by Mark Bunn as Norwich held onto their 2-1 lead.
“It was disappointing,” said Andre. “I think we played a good game, controlled the possession and played good football in the first and second half.
“We had a good share of opportunities, so it’s a pity to see us lose the game in this way, in the last few minutes.
“We set out to try and win this game and to let it slip in the end is difficult for everyone.
“We feel the frustration and the disappointment from not making it into the quarter-finals, but we move on and focus on Wigan now.”
