Collins To Set The Record Straight

Collins To Set The Record Straight

James Collins is determined to make the most of this weekends FA Cup Semi after tasting disappointment in 2006 with Wet Spam.

Speaking on the Official Site ahead of tomorrow's clash with Chelsea, Collins explained that despite playing in every round previous he had to sit on the bench when Wet Spam faced Liverpool back in 2006, watching the Scousers take the Cup in the process.

'I remember I was on the bench looking at the clock, there was no time left and we were winning 3-2.'

Gerrard went onto equilise in the dying seconds and Liverpool eventually won out on penalties.

'At the time you don't know if you are ever going to get another chance to go so far in the FA Cup.'

Collins continues to say that being in the Semi is a massive experience for him and the team, and he's determined to make sure he doesn't taste that disappointment again, especially after losing already to Utd in the Carling Cup Final.

'I think I've got every excuse to play the best match I've ever played on Saturday.'

It's obvious Collins also comments on the Chelsea thumping the other week, but he prefers to take hope from the fact we have already beaten Chelsea this season and sees no reason why we can't do it again.

We'll be expecting a huge performance from James, particularly if Richard Dunne fails to make the starting line-up following his injury scare. James has enjoyed a very promising season since he made the switch from Upton Park, and has formed a formidable central defensive partnership with Dunne.
