Villa boss O'Neill keen for long FA Cup run

Aston Villa boss Martin O'Neill is desperate for an FA Cup victory over Gillingham this weekend.

O'Neill said: "Our record is not good. In fact, a good run this year would be getting into the fourth round!

"I love the FA Cup. The first final I saw on TV was in 1959 when Nottingham Forest played Luton - I had to go to a neighbour's house because we didn't have a telly.

"It's something I've never won as a player or manager and I'd really like to do well in it."
