Wright up there

8 March 2013

Josh gunning for Wembley

Lions midfielder Josh Wright admits this Sunday's FA Cup Quarter-Final is one of the biggest games of his career to date.
Josh, who has made 23 appearances for Kenny's men so far this season, will be looking to retain his place in the starting line-up which has seen him selected alongside Jimmy Abdou in each of Millwall's last three Championship games.
"Growing up the FA Cup was always a tournament you look at, want to play in and do as well as you can in. League games are important and I've played in promotion games at Wembley and in relegation battles. They're all big but to have the opportunity to get to Wembley you would have to say this is up there with the biggest.
It would be a great achievement for the club. It's a new way of doing it having them (Semi-Finals) at Wembley and that gives some of the smaller clubs the chance to play there earlier than the Final. When you get to that stage anyone can beat anyone but we have to take each step as it comes."
In the Championship, Sunday's opponents are just one point better off than Millwall despite being in the Premier League last season and Josh hopes, like against Aston Villa in the Fourth Road, the side can make the most of their underdog status.
"As a club Millwall is used to going into these type of games as the underdog and we thrive off that. That helps us and helps our fans and gives us some extra boost for whatever reason. But whether you're favourites or underdogs you have to go in with the same gameplan."
