What's Been Said

Neil Lennon"It's important to keep the momentum going and if we can negotiate the tie then you're buoyed by going into the Wolves game and then the Rotherham game after that. It'll be a cracking tie, a blood-and-thunder Lancashire-Yorkshire tie."

Steve Evans"The FA Cup is a magical cup competition. I hear managers and head coaches at all levels say they want to rest players. When it gets to this stage, you want to win. I want us to be in the draw on Sunday and have an opportunity to be at home at Elland Road against whoever."
