Sunderland skipper O’Shea: It’s still going to be difficult in replay

Have your say

Sunderland skipper John O’Shea was pleased to earn another crack at Everton – after today’s FA Cup quarter-final at Goodison Park was drawn 1-1.

“We’re delighted to get them back to the Stadium of Light, we did some great defending, had a bit of luck and a great save from our keeper has kept us in the cup,” he said.

O’Shea dismissed any suggestion his side were now favourites though, adding: “Everton are a fantastic team and we are under no illusions just how difficult it’s going to be at the Stadium of Light.”
