Andros relishing hectic schedule

Posted on 23 January 2015  - 16:45

Andros Townsend says no-one is complaining about our hectic fixture list.


Saturday's FA Cup fourth round tie against Leicester at the Lane represents our 37th match in all competitions already this season.

We sit sixth in the Premier League after 22 games, take on Sheffield United in the second leg of our Capital One Cup semi-final on Wednesday and face Fiorentina in the Round of 32 of the Europa League over two legs next month.

"The games are coming thick and fast but we wouldn’t want it any other way," said Andros, who scored the only goal of Wednesday's Capital One Cup semi-final first leg at the Lane.

"We have a big squad and we all want to be playing games. A game every three days is perfect for me and if I’m selected again on Saturday hopefully I’ll put in another performance, score another goal and put us through in the FA Cup.

"I’m not complaining of tiredness and no-one in the changing room will be either."

Christian Eriksen struck late to secure a 2-1 win in our first meeting against Leicester in the Premier League at the King Power Stadium on Boxing Day.

"It will be another difficult match," added Andros, whose penalty against the Blades made it four out of four from the spot this season. "They took us all the way on Boxing Day but we managed to get the three points and I think it will be the same on Saturday.

"If we’re going to go through, we’ll need to be at our best. Hopefully that will be the case."
