Valencia eyes on Wembley


Enner Valencia is aiming to grab an FA Cup winners medal in his first season with the Irons hut – as the cliche goes – he’s taking it one game at a time.

Having come through one of the sternest tests possible – against bogey team Everton – he refuses to take Bristol City are any other team lightly.

He said: “Everton are a tough side and it was very difficult, both games. But hopefully we can continue on this path why not make it all the way to the final.

Speaking to the official club site he added: “At one point the game was going away from us and we really didn’t deserve to lose on Tuesday.

“I don’t know much about Bristol City]. I watch a lot of English football and I think at every level here it’s very competitive. We have to take this next game very seriously and hopefully we’ll be able to go through.”
