We let the fans down

David Moyes has said that his Everton team let their fans down after they crashed out of the FA Cup against lower league opposition.

The Toffees were beaten 1-0 in their fifth-round tie with Championship club Reading at Goodison Park last night, and Moyes lamented the attitude of his players, especially after beating Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the previous round.

‘We let the supporters down,' said the Everton boss. 'We didn't play well enough and we got what we deserved,’ he said. ‘After coming through the Chelsea tie and getting a home draw was all you could ever ask for.

‘We got that but we never came up to scratch, apart from the first 10-15 minutes when we passed the ball well. We didn't have enough quality, enough craft or guile to break them down at the top end of the pitch.’
