Huddlestone: Hull players up for FA Cup quarterfinal

Tom Huddlestone says Hull City's senior players are ready for their FA Cup quarterfinal against Sunderland.

The Tigers are just 90 minutes away from securing a semi-final spot in this season's FA Cup, with only Sunderland standing between them and a trip to Wembley.

Huddlestone told the Hull Daily Mail: "The lads are very happy and confident to be just 90 minutes away from reaching Wembley.

"Obviously, we knew in the Brighton game that we had to perform better than we did down there and we did that, so the quarter-final at home is a massive incentive to get through to the semis.

"We've still got a massive quarter-final tie to get through first, but a lot of the lads are international players and have played at big stadiums in the past. Even this season, we've been to the likes of the Emirates, the Etihad and Anfield, so I don't think the lads will be over-awed."
