Simpson Won't Get Carried Away

Danny Simpson, "Just because there might be a bit of hype about you after a couple of games for the first team it doesn't mean you've made it. You've almost got to work even harder when that happens to prove that you can stay in there. I was really pleased that I was able to set up Wayne for the fourth goal. All the lads came running over to me and it was just a really mad feeling, especially as all my family were at Old Trafford that day.

"To be playing with the likes of Ronaldo, Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs - players you've grown up watching - was just amazing. And having Rio next to me in the defence was brilliant. He never stopped talking to me and helped me so much with my positioning and marking.

"The addition of the new players in the summer has meant there is a good group of young lads at the club now and it makes training really good fun and exciting. There's good competition for places because everyone is working hard to get their chance. That can only help the team."
