Happy Ewood return beckons Antonio
Michael Antonio likes Ewood Park!
The high-energy Hammer grabbed a couple there last season when with Nottingham Forect and admits he’s looking forward to his return this Sunday.
He said: “Last time I played at Ewood Park I scored two goals so it’ll be nice going back there. One was a header; one was a volley from 25 yards out so, hopefully, I can do that again!”Speaking to www.whufc.com
he said: “Blackburn are a side where they are going to throw everything at us. They’ll think ‘Ah, they’re a Premier League team, we’ve got nothing to lose here, and the pressure is off us.’
“So the pressure will be on us, especially with the form we are in right now. Having said that, I think it’ll be a decent game.”
He added: “For the rest of the season, I just want to keep performing well, try and stay in the team and I’ll probably set more goals for myself next season.”
And on the FA Cup victory versus a top six finish he says: It’s one of those things where you don’t get remembered for coming sixth, but if you win the FA Cup everyone remembers that, you have a medal to show for the rest of your life. As a kid you always dream of playing in it and as a player you always dream to win it.”
