Southgate: Middlesbrough excited about facing Robson's Blades

Middlesbrough boss Gareth Southgate is delighted to have drawn Bryan Robson's Sheffield United in the next round of the FA Cup.

Southgate said: "Bryan is very popular at this club. Everybody you talk to thought the world of him and enjoyed working with him.

"He had a fantastic record here and was the catalyst for a lot of things that happened, including the move to the Riverside and bringing in world class players.

"So it adds lot of spice to the Cup-tie for a lot of the staff here and, no doubt our fans, and everybody will look forward to the game."
