Palace hero Ambrose thrilled with Man Utd Cup shock

Crystal Palace hero Darren Ambrose was thrilled with their Carling Cup shock at Manchester United.

Ambrose savoured a "great occasion".

"It's fantastic," Ambrose told Sky Sports 1. "It was a great occasion coming here against the champions.

"It was a massive occasion for the fans."

Cardiff await in the last four after the draw was made following the match, meaning one npower Championship club will take on either Manchester City or Liverpool at Wembley.

Wednesday night's win was made all the more remarkable by a poor run of Championship form, which has seen Palace go five games without a win or a goal.

"We've had a quiet period in the season but we came here in confident mood and the spirit is fantastic," Ambrose continued.

"We've got a great team spirit, it's a lot different from last year - we can beat anyone, and we showed that tonight.

"We weren't worried about the lack of goals, we've got goalscorers and that showed tonight, it was a great finish from Glenn on the second."
