Opposing goalkeeper and penalty shootout hero for Brighton Matt Ryan says he spoke to the Martin following the tie.

“It happens,” he said.

“I told him that one moment does not define him.

“He was solid all game apart from that.

“You have got to learn from your mistakes and see what you can do to not let it happen again.

“Aside from that he had a great game and I am sure he will be better for his experience.”
