Speaking on the Official Site ahead of tonight's clash (then postponed...ed) with Blackburn Dunney explained that he's fed up on not playing a part in Cup Semi's and more importantly Cup Finals, as the ironic stat given all his years in the game, he hasn't once appeared in the latter two stages of a Cup competition.
