Azza targets Cup progress

Posted on 27 January 2012  - 16:20

Since his arrival at the Club in 2005, Aaron Lennon has enjoyed a Carling Cup victory, several European campaigns and now, a role in the title race.

"I think the FA Cup is always a massive competition. We haven’t gone that far in it over the years since I’ve been here, it would be great to put a little run together," said the 24-year-old in an interview with Spurs TV Online.

"We played them a couple of years ago and it was a hard game, but it’s a local derby – it only takes 45 minutes to get down there – so it makes it more important."

The match Aaron is referring to is the tough fifth-round Carling Cup encounter played at Vicarage Road in the 2008/2009 season. The Hornets took the lead early on in the match before Roman Pavlyuchenko leveled things up, with Darren Bent grabbing a late winner.

With Watford sitting in mid-table in the Championship and a full house expected, there is little doubt that Sean Dyche’s team will be ready for battle tonight and whilst Aaron appreciates this fact, he expects us to prevail.

"Going away to Watford won’t be easy but we’ve got a strong squad and we’re looking to go through to the next round."
