Alan On Cup Draw

Alan Pardew admits that the third round F.A. cup draw at Wigan will be a tough test.

"It is a tough draw for us I think and in all honesty we aren't going to get a great big pay day out of it," he says.

"It is one of the real tricky ones and they are a very good side at home.

"I am not too happy about the draw but whatever is put in front of us there is no reason why we can't go on and win.

"We showed when we went to Tottenham we have got the stomach for the fight and we will be ready for this game.

"The fans of this club deserve a really good cup run after last year's disappointment.

"We will very much focus on that when it comes round but for the moment we are concentrating on where we are."
