Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart accepts Costel Pantilimon's status as their FA Cup keeper.

Hart was replaced by Pantilimon for the 4-0 FA Cup home win over Leeds United.

"I totally respect the fact Costel has done great and has done brilliantly in the FA Cup for us,'' said Hart. "It is always going to be the case and sometimes you have just got to wait.

''I have waited a lot longer than two weeks to get a game, so I am happy to just play."
