Matt Taylor has given an honest assessment as his side drew 1-1 with Bradford City to earn an Emirates FA Cup replay back at St James Park.
Despite Sam Nombe's 86th minute goal, Matt has admitted that City were below par.
"I'm always honest and I thought we were poor today. Somehow we found a way," he said.
"Cam played really well and kept us in, but some the lads struggled to influence the game in any way. Perhaps it was just an off day.
"I don't want to go too deep into it, but too many of them had a poor game today. But, we're still in the hat.
"We look a bit tired, and we lacked sharpness, but I have to give them credit for finding a way."
