Cup return excites Huenemeier

13th February 2018, 15:43 by Alex Jack

Brighton defender Uwe Huenemeier says he's excited to continue the club's FA Cup journey when they host Coventry this weekend.

The Sky Blues head to the Amex Stadium looking to cause an upset against Chris Hughton's Premier League outfit.

Brighton managed to get past Championship outfit Middlesbrough in the last round and now Huenemeier is looking forward to a return to cup action on Saturday.

He told the club's official website: "After the last game [against Middlesbrough] I think we all realised that we have a big opportunity to go far in this competition – if you win an away game like that and then get a bit of luck with a home tie in the draw you do start to think you can go all the way.

"Now we have to make the most of the draw, we know we’re favourites but we must be ready – there are two more steps to Wembley.

"It’s getting to an exciting stage now and hopefully we can continue our progress.

"Maybe when you start out in the competition you’re not thinking that far ahead and you look to take it game by game, but we still have to take it steadily - we’re all excited by how we’re doing in this competition."
