Vorm: I am gutted

Michel Vorm has insisted that he will try and put his blooper which cost Tottenham an FA Cup replay against Leicester City behind him as attention switches to Sheffield United and a place at Wembley up for grabs on Wednesday evening.

Leonardo Ulloa cancelled out a first-half penalty from Spurs midfielder Andros Townsend before Jeff Schlupp stabbed a stoppage-time winner past flapping goalkeeper Michel Vorm to send them into the fifth-round draw.

Vorm, who could yet retain his place in the side next week, admits the manner of the defeat was tough to take, the Dutchman having earlier kept his side in the tie with a couple of fine saves before his untimely gaff allowed Schlupp’s shot to roll over the goalline.

“If that (mistake) happens earlier in the game, maybe you can turn it around, but at the end makes it even worse,” Vorm said on Spurs TV.

“When the ball goes in, it is horrible, but that is football.

“I am gutted now, but you have to go on because there is another big game ahead on Wednesday and we have to focus on that as quickly as possible.”

  1. He made a couple of awesome saves in the game, and one mistake cost us the game. That's the trouble with being a keeper, Not blaming him one little bit. The other 10 players on the pitch should have put us in a position where one mistake wouldn't have mattered.
