Chris Coleman admits he is praying that Fulham get a good Cup draw today as he believes the FA Cup could be wide open this season.

The Fulham boss was delighted with the way his side, inspired by little on-loan Italian magician Vincenzo Montella, swept aside Championship Stoke at Craven Cottage this weekend, and hopes he can put together a substantial Cup run with the Cottagers.

Coleman told the Daily Mirror:

“I’ve never been to Wembley for football. In fact, the last time I went to Wembley was to watch Lenny Kravitz about five years ago. Did he score? He might have done afterwards!

The furthest I’ve got at Fulham is the quarterfinal three years back when we got knocked out by Manchester United. We have to see what draw we get on Monday – and we could do with some luck.

If you get drawn at home you have a chance against anyone. But if it is one of the big guys we will just have to remember that we have beaten them before. But we are in the hat and have as good a chance as anybody else.”
