Collins eager to change FA Cup misfortune with West Ham

West Ham United centre-back James Collins is eager to turnaround his FA Cup misfortune with the East Londoners.

The 32-year-old was a part of the Hammers squad which lost the 2006 final to Liverpool and is keen to right those wrongs.

Slaven Bilic's West Ham defeated Blackburn Rovers 5-1 on Sunday to qualify for the quarter-finals of the tournament and will to travel to Manchester United in March as they look towards a possible Wembley return.

"I was involved last time when we got to Wembley," he said.

"It's still one of the, if not the, biggest highlights of my career so far.

"To go there with such a good team and be on the right side of the result this time would be amazing."
