Bolton fullback Alonso pleased to taste Cup action

Bolton Wanderers fullback Marcos Alonso was happy to be involved in their Carling Cup defeat at Burnley.

The 19-year-old made just his second appearance for the club at Turf Moor on Tuesday night following a summer move from Real Madrid, and despite the defeat, remained in an upbeat manner.

"As a team we gave a good account of ourselves and were unlucky," the left-back told the club's official website.

"We've just got to forget the Burnley match as soon as possible and focus on the next game against Manchester United in the Premier League."
