Sullivan’s big reminder to team

sullychairDavid Sullivan has reminded the squad that victory tonight puts them within 180 minutes of an FA Cup semi final appearance!

It may sound a little like stating the obvious but put that way the reality and importance of tonight’s game really kicks in.

Speaking on the official site he says: “We are now preparing for another big game under the lights when we play Liverpool at the Boleyn Ground.

It is a huge game for us as a victory would take us to a winnable match at Blackburn in the Fifth Round.

A victory there would take us to within 90 minutes of a Wembley semi-final so there is everything to play for.”

Sullivan is delighted to see Andy Carroll back and said: “It might take him a few games to get back to his best, but I hope he he has a real impact against Liverpool and Norwich this week.

It is looking more promising on the injury front and once we get Diafra Sakho and Manuel Lanzini back in action, I believe we will start to score a lot more goals. I hope both players will be back in action within the next two weeks.”
