Cup magic remains

7 January 2014

Neill Collins hailed United's cup exploits at Aston Villa as a 'terrific achievement' but insists it will count for nothing at Notts County on Saturday.

Speaking of the 2-1 victory at Villa Park, the Scottish defender, who alongside Harry Maguire helped keep Christian Benteke at bay, said: "Saturday's win was a terrific achievement, the two lads who scored the goals took a lot of the plaudits, but there wasn't one bad performance from anyone in a United shirt.

"From the first minute to the last we stuck to the Gaffer's gameplan and it was a tremendous feeling to be able to celebrate with our 6,000 travelling supporters after the game.

"They were brilliant too and the lads all commented afterwards that they could hear every song that was being sung, the magic of the FA Cup still remains, Saturday proves that."

Looking ahead to returning to League One action, Collins added: "Obviously all the lads have been on a massive high since the weekend, but now we are back on the training pitch, the Gaffer has quickly got everyone looking forward to Notts County on Saturday.

"Our league form, given our position, remains our bread and butter. A few more positive results and we can start looking up instead of over our shoulders.
