Sheffield United loan star Greg Halford believes his side would have beaten Hull on Saturday if he had stayed up front for the whole 90 minutes.
The defender, on loan from Sunderland, headed the Blades in front early in the FA Cup fifth-round tie after he started up front as a makeshift striker due to injuries and suspensions, but he was then moved to central defence after captain Chris Morgan went off injured before Hull's Kamil Zayatte hit back to force a replay.
Halford said: "I thought I adapted well and I thought we deserved to go through. I think I am quite comfortable up there and hopefully it showed."
He added: "All the lads were saying if I'd have stayed up front and Morgs had stayed on, we'd have turned them over. But it wasn't our day."
