Middlesbrough winger Stewart Downing admits he is eyeing the FA Cup.

"I'm dreaming a little bit about the FA Cup now and it's wide open," said the England winger.

"But we have to get back to reality. Sheffield United is a tough game and they won't be coming here next week to make up the numbers.

"They want exactly the same as us - it's a chance for them to kick on as well."
