"We're determined to prove we're a good side," states Ferguson

The Northern Irishman looks ahead to White Hart Lane trip...

Millwall will be determined to prove their quality when they travel to Tottenham Hotspur in the Emirates FA Cup Quarter-Finals this Sunday (kick-off 2pm), states Shane Ferguson.

The Lions travel to north London this weekend for the last ever Emirates FA Cup tie to be played at White Hart Lane, which will be shown live on BBC One.

The club's incredible 17-game unbeaten run will be tested by the Premier League outfit, but the Northern Irish winger is confident in his side's ability to compete.

"We always analyse the opposition, but with Tottenham being on TV every week, we will know even more about them," said Ferguson.

"They are a very good side with some excellent players, but so are we. We'll go there determined to prove it."

Having played in 40 first team games so far this season, after featuring for his country in EURO 2016 last summer, Ferguson would be forgiven for feeling slightly jaded. However, the winger claimed that he is "fine" with the relentless nature of Millwall's fixture calendar.

"EURO 2016 was a great experience and I wouldn't have swapped it for the world," he said.

"It does mean that I haven't had much time off, but I'm fine with that. I just want to play in every game that I can, but the manager recognises when I maybe need a little rest, because I have been playing virtually non-stop for a year-and-a-half now.

"Just like last season, we're in good form and have our sights set on pushing for promotion again. In addition, this time round, we also have an FA Cup Quarter-Final coming up, so there is that to look forward to as well."

A win for Millwall on Sunday would see them grace the field of Wembley Stadium once more in the Semi-Finals. 

With The Lions in the Sky Bet League One Play-Off spots, the possibility of three visits to the Home of Football towards the end of the season looms large.

"The League is our priority. I'd love to play at Wembley again this year - ideally in both the Cup and the Play-Offs - but if it came to the push, I'd prefer it to be in the Play-Offs, because that would mean we are one game away from promotion to The Championship."
