In his regular column for Eurosport, Fulham captain Danny Murphy says there’s little danger of the boys easing up for the FA Cup tie with Notts County on Sunday.
As a club, we are extremely excited about this weekend’s FA Cup tie against Notts County. We see the competition as a real opportunity for us, especially with three of the big four teams out. Understandably, it is a huge game for Notts County who have already put Wigan out, so they certainly have that ability to win the big games, with quality in their side. It will be a cracking fixture and one I can’t wait for.
I don’t think it is difficult to psyche yourself up for a game even when you are favourites. We can’t be sloppy or complacent in what is likely to be a very fast and frenetic game.
I still value the FA Cup as a fantastic competition and, as a squad, Fulham take great pride in doing well in any competition that we are involved in.
