Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal says his side deserved to win Saturday's game against Sheffield United in the FA Cup.
The Red Devils left it late as they needed a Wayne Rooney penalty to battle past Nigel Adkins's men.
And the Dutchman says the most important thing - as he told his players - is to be safely through to the next round.
"Escape from jail? I don't think so," van Gaal told BT Sport.
"It is always difficult to play against such opponents.
"They are defending with 10, 11 behind the ball. You have to play quicker than we did in the first half.
"In the second it was a little bit better, we created a little bit more. It is easier to defend than attack.
"It was a deserved penalty and we win the match, the most important thing. I said to the boys the most important thing is we are in the second round.
"We have to play quicker with the ball."
