Crawley boss Evans already eyeing Man Utd Cup tie

Crawley Town boss Steve Evans is already eyeing an FA Cup showdown with Manchester United - despite Hull City standing in their way.

Evans' then non- league side narrowly lost 1-0 to Manchester United in the fifth- round of last year's FA Cup and the Red Devils boss would love a rematch against their name-sakes from Old Trafford.

Nicky Barmby's Hull stand in their way but Evans said: "For me it is Fergie 1 Evans 0 - when they scored with a breakaway and we didn't.

"I want to go back and take him on.

"He is the Godfather of all managers. Everybody wants to challenge him.

"When I saw the Hull ball pulled out, I was going 'no' down the telly. It's further away than most of our fans go on holiday!"
