United manager on Birmingham success...
Manager Neil Warnock said he was a proud man after watching his United side come from behind to beat Birmingham in Tuesday's FA Cup third round replay at St Andrew's.
Second half goals from Ross McCormack and El-Hadji Diouf turned a half-time deficit around as United won 2-1 to set up a fourth round meeting with Tottenham Hotspur at Elland Road.
"Those results are the best type in your career when everyone writes you off," said the boss.
"We'd had some stick at Barnsley on Saturday, quite rightly. There were 5,000 there who said what they thought, and we wanted to have a real a go on Tuesday.
"We lost Luciano as well. He went down with sickness in training on Monday and was sick overnight so we had to take that on the chin, but we decided to go a different way on Tuesday with Ross up there and Luke Varney.
"I thought Luke was superb, they all were. Michael Brown in midfield did very well and Lee Peltier and Tom Lees were outstanding. I decided to do away with the big lads and go with a bit of pace, and everybody contributed. Whitey cleared one off the line…
"It's good to play Spurs now. It's a fabulous game for us now and will be a cracking tie."
United played some great football in the second half, the equalising goal coming courtesy of a trademark McCormack finish after some great play.
"It was a good move wasn't it?" said the boss. "I've seen one or two people criticise our style of play, but no one passed it more than we did at Birmingham. We played it on the floor, and our movement was great. We took our goals well and could have had more.
"We said at half-time, that we felt if we could score we could go on and win it. I know it sounds daft, but it was one of those where I thought if we get one, we can get two here because this could be ours for the taking.
"I thought we'd be apprehensive after Saturday, and we were, but we came back in the second half and started really well. They are a great bunch of lads who give everything for the cause."
