Davey: Forget league troubles

04 Apr 2008 - 12:24:21

Barnsley manager Simon Davey has admitted Sunday's FA Cup semi-final with Cardiff City will allow his players to forget about their league woes.

The Tykes are only above the Championship drop zone on goal difference after a dismal run of just one win in their last nine league games.

However, Davey has told his players to forget their league troubles when they take on the Bluebirds at Wembley.

"We are forgetting about the league and concentrating on the FA Cup and we are going to enjoy it," he said.

"For the last four weeks I've been asked questions about the FA Cup when we had the league to concentrate on and, now we're in the FA Cup, I'm being asked about the league.

"It will be a different game to what we've been used to in the FA Cup so far this season.

"For our players to play at Wembley in this type of game is a fantastic achievement and as I've said before we have no fear in the dressing room.

"This is a massive game for everyone concerned with the club and we want to make it a day to remember."
