Sunderland boss Gus Poyet is happy to throw everything at making a success of his job.
An FA Cup quarter-final clash with Hull at the KC Stadium stands between them and another prized date at Wembley.
He said: "I don't want to be a hero - but a full day off? No way.
"For example, on Monday the players are off but I'm going to be watching DVDs of Crystal Palace's last three or four games.
"It's a massive game for us so it's not a day off for me. It's difficult but it's the job and I like it.
"I've told the analyst here not to put Palace on my USB drive because I would have ended up watching them already.''
