Home sweet home

Apart from avoiding Man Utd and Arsenal, what we really wanted for our FA Cup Quarter-Final was to home advantage - and for the second time in two days our prayers have been answered. This lunchtime's draw has handed us a home tie against the winners of the replayed Spurs v Forest fixture.

There's no doubt that Forest would be the easier of the two opponents, and with them at home for the replay they've got a decent chance of turning Spurs over.

That said, our recent record against Spurs in the FA Cup is very good. We beat the Londoners 2-0 at Old Trafford with two Shearer goals to reach the 1999 Final, and I had the good fortune to be present when we dished out a 6-1 thumping in a Third Round replay at St James's in December of that year.

Could this be our year at last?
