O'Neill Looking To Heal FA Cup Ache

O'Neill Looking To Heal FA Cup Ache

Martin O'Neill says an FA Cup win for Villa is long overdue and says the 'ache' amongst the fans is tangible!

The Villa boss said on the official site: 'There is an ache with supporters that they have not contested more finals and semi-finals. They also probably feel they should have won it at least a couple more times since that victory in 1957. It is surprising, I will admit. The only time they have reached the final since 1957 was in 2000. The record has not been great and since I have arrived as manager, I certainly haven't enhanced it.'

He says of today's clash with Everton we are more than capable of coming out the victors if we play well adding, 'The FA Cup is a very special competition - it is terrific. It is something I have been unable to win in my managerial and playing career. So it is coveted - no doubt about that.'

The draw for the 1/4 finals will take place at 18:30 tonight:

Numbers and teams for the FA Cup sixth-round draw:

1 Sheffield United or Hull City
2 Chelsea
3 West Ham United or Middlesbrough
4 Blackburn Rovers or Coventry City
5 Derby County or Manchester United
6 Swansea City or Fulham
7 Everton or Aston Villa
8 Cardiff City Arsenal or Burnley
