Minto: Gutted For Glenn

Scott Minto insists he feels as sorry for his boss as he does for himself after his penalty was saved at the Madejski stadium on Tuesday night, sending West Ham out of the Worthington Cup.
"I'm disappointed for Glenn because he is a fantastic coach and has brought in some fantastic ideas to the club, and all the lads are 100% behind him," he says.
"I am gutted, and me more than anyone else.
"To be honest I felt pretty confident going up to take the penalty, though I can't speak for anyone else.
"I just feel for Glenn, the lads, and the fans as well.
"We did practise recently and had a few sessions after training.
"It was one of those where I knew what I wanted to do but I didn't quite execute it.
"I didn't really speak to anyone in the dressing room because I have been so down myself.
"We came wanting to win it in the 90 minutes, we felt confident, and I think we showed we are  the better side.
"We kept possession very well, certainly in the second half and extra time as well."
Scott, in for Nigel Winterburn, hopes his injury problems are now finally behind him.
A knee injury ruled him out for much of last season, before damage to his other knee set him back further.
His comeback game was on the final day of last season at Saturday's opponents Middlesbrough when Glenn was in charge in a caretaker capacity.
He then suffered further problems in the summer, but is now raring to go - if selected.
He is hoping he has done enough to retain a place though there is every possibility that Nigel Winterburn will return at the Riverside.
"I was quite happy with my performance and felt I improved as the game went on," says Scott.
"Glenn said he doesn't want us moping around because we have a big game against Middlesbrough coming up.
"It is important that we pick ourselves up; it would be unprofessional not to do that.
"We feel we have been playing very well in our games and were unlucky not to win against Leeds and Derby, so we are looking forward to games at the moment."
And he feels Jermain Defoe, who missed his penalty outright when a successful take would have put West Ham through and avoided the necessity of Scott having to deliver, will bounce back soon.
"He is a very resilient character and I think you can see that in him," he says, "he has got that confidence.
"He believes he will score every time he touches the ball, so I don't think he will need too much of a chat to.
"Perhaps he can have a chat with me!
"He had a fantastic season last season and everyone can see he is a great prospect."
