Extract from the Nigel Pearson interview:
FOX: In the play-off we were within an ace of getting to Wembley… if you’d have known what Yann Kermorgant was going to take the penalty he did, would you have stopped him?!
NP: Have you seen him playing for Charlton recently, he’s doing alright isn’t he?
Nobody saw that coming, no. We’d done a penalty shoot-out the day before in training and he smashed every one in the top corner. There’s no accounting for how pressure affects some people. Unfortunately we will always be ruing the missed opportunity of that day. I think we fancied ourselves to go all the way if we’d got through, because we’d hit our stride. We’d come off the back of four defeats and then ended the season with five straight wins. We were on good form and the players felt great about themselves.
There are always things you look back on and think you might have done slightly differently but for the most part I think that season went pretty well. Unfortunately you can’t account for what happened in Cardiff.
