GUS Poyet is itching to get Sunderland back to Wembley – even if the Black Cats’ Crystal Palace league tie is more important.

SAFC travel to Hull tomorrow for the FA Cup quarter final, where a win would take The Lads back to London for the semi-final.

But with Sunderland still battling to avoid relegation, Poyet admits his side’s home game against Crystal palace on March 15 is a much bigger fish to fry.

He said: “We don’t want to give anything away. We want to win the game, and the sooner we get back to our winning ways and feeling a little bit better, it’ll be the best for us to go into an absolutely massive game next week against Crystal Palace.
