Spine Tingling Rooney

Spine Tingling Rooney

Burton's FA Cup hero Darren Tinson says the sight of Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo jogging up and down Albion's rutted pitch sent a shudder down his spine.

'We had read in the papers what their team was likely to be but we had absolutely no idea who was in it until we came out for the warm-up,' admitted Tinson.

'When I glanced across and saw those big-name players I have to admit I was a little daunted. But we had to tell ourselves we were not scared and make sure we made an impression early in the game.

'We raised our game, and on a difficult pitch Manchester United were below par. But we never imagined getting a result like that at all.'
