John Gorman says the team have to be strong mentally for Wednesday night's encounter with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
A quirk of cup dates and the fixure list sees us come face to face with Chelsea again, three days after our FA Cup dreams were shattered by the same opponents.
John insists Chelsea are just one of a sequence of games that have to be met head-on in an effort to ensure a positive conclusion to the season.
"We've had a good meeting with the boys and we know we've got ten games to go and the first one is Chelsea," he reasoned.
"We've got to take something really positive out of the season, we've got to put the cups behind us now.
"It's going to be a hard one, obviously their fans will be having a bit of a wind-up, which is understandable.
"We've just got to be stronger, very strong mentally and go out on Wednesday night and show what we're capable of."
