Bell said he was having to pinch himself as step-eight side City held League One Rovers for an hour before finally losing 5-1 in the second round of the FA Cup.

"We've just seen lads who played in the county league playe Tranmere Rovers. They've given a great account of themselves and done everyone proud," he said.

"We brought more fans here than we have at home.

"I spoke to one of my friends, who was sober by the way! I said 'what was it like in with our fans?' He sad 'I've been to Wembley, I've been to Old Trafford, I've been to Fratton Park, that's the best atmosphere I've seen."
