Portsmouth's Hughes: Dodgy tele wrecked Cup excitement

Portsmouth midfielder Richard Hughes admits he had originally thought they'd missed drawing Manchester United in the FA Cup quarterfinals.

Hughes was watching the FA Cup quarter-final draw on the fuzzy set with no sound.

And when his side were drawn at Manchester United, he thought the number was Chelsea's.

Hughes said: "Betty's telly made our No 6 ball look like a No 8. I celebrated but soon realised. We have to go there and be confident. They are a fantastic team but are not invincible."
