Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill knows TV will be hoping for an upset against FA Cup opponents Peterborough United.

O’Neill, who has never enjoyed success in this competition as a player or manager, is well aware of the dangers.

O’Neill said: “They are there to see us get beaten. Three years ago, when I was at Villa, we played at Gillingham and they caused us all sorts of problems.

“We had England internationals in the team – James Milner, people like that were playing.

“We were lucky we won eventually, lucky to survive. So I know the feeling.’’
