Flores confident of FA Cup run


Quique Sanchez Flores sees no reason why Watford cannot go all the way in the FA Cup this season.

The Hornets looked to have already secured their Premier League survival after amassing 36 points with 12 games remaining and they could reach the last eight of the FA Cup if they overcome Leeds on Saturday.

Flores respects the competition and will field a strong team against the Championship side as he looks to take his side to Wembley.

"We have the feeling that we can do something interesting in this competition. We pick good players, we play well, we haven't been conceding goals which shows we are taking it seriously," Flores told his pre-match press conference.

"You need to focus just on the next game, we are now focused on Leeds.

"We chose the right players, we respect the competition, we respect the fans and the history of the club so we will try and put our best team out.

"The fans want to go through to the next round.

"We have a good opportunity, we are playing at home, we have the opportunity to play with our fans, we try to accept this challenge."

While he wants the club to go far in the FA Cup, Flores insists securing Premier League survival is the priority.

"We are mixing well in both competitions, the league is our priority of course, but now we are able to play in the FA Cup and the focus is for that," he said.

"We have a squad of 25 players, they train very well and they all deserve to play. We have the confidence in these players."
