West Brom striker Long convinced of long FA Cup run

West Bromwich Albion striker Shane Long feels they can win the FA Cup.

The Irish striker saw his opener at Loftus Road levelled by a stoppage time Kieron Dyer strike but believes his team can progress in the replay - and then go on a deep run.

Long explained: "The gaffer said before the game: "All you have to do is win six games and you win the FA Cup".'

He added: "It's a great chance to win a medal and, at the end of your career, you want something to look back on. We've got a great squad of players here and we can beat any team on our day so this is a great chance for us this season.

"QPR will have to travel now and they are in a bit of a dog-fight at the bottom of the table so that extra game won't do them any good."
