LAMEX STADIUM, STEVENAGE
Sunday, February 20 - just after 0-0 draw with Stevenage in the FA Cup
I watched the draw for the fifth round of the FA Cup and the second it came out Stevenage away, I knew it would be tough and that certainly proved the case.
They are a big, strong team, physical and get the ball forward but we stood strong and we have to take the positives out of the game.
There are upsets in the FA Cup, there wasn’t one here, of course we wanted to win but now we have the replay to look forward to in a couple of weeks.
It was one of those games where you have to show a different side, just like we did at Anfield.
You can’t always go out and play the way we do at White Hart Lane, get the ball down and knock it about. The playing surface is like a carpet there.
You come to Stevenage, it was a little bobbly and things didn’t go how we wanted them to. We had to dig deep and we’re still in the cup, that's what matters.
We’ve now got Arsenal and United, huge games in the Premier League and we’ll look forward to the FA Cup again when it comes along.
Until next time!
