Coke believes Town can take the positives from Old Trafford experience despite suffering defeat to the Red Devils

Giles Coke believes Town can leave Old Trafford with their heads held high, despite being knocked out of the Capital One Cup by Manchester United.

The Blues put in a decent performance at the Theatre of Dreams against a strong United side but ultimately goals from Wayne Rooney, Andreas Pereira and Anthony Martial saw the Red Devils progress.

“It was a tough game against one of the best teams in Europe but we certainly didn’t disgrace ourselves,” the midfielder told Ipswich Player HD.

“Coming here we always knew it would be a tough test but I think we all did ourselves proud and it was a great effort.

“Ultimately their quality shone through and to be fair to them, they delivered in the end. But I think we can look back with our heads held high and I think 3-0 was probably a little bit flattering in the end.

“We will dust ourselves down now though and focus on a massive game against Bristol City on Saturday, with three points in the League the aim.

“But for sure, this is an experience we’ve all enjoyed and it’s where we want to be on a regular basis next term.”
