Randolph - Replay is going to be a special night

Darren Randolph is already counting the days to the Emirates FA Cup quarter-final replay against Manchester United and knows it is going to be another special night at the Boleyn Ground.

The Hammers were forced to settle for a replay after Anthony Martial grabbed a late equaliser to cancel out another wonder goal from Dimitri Payet.

Few could forget the last cup encounter under the lights when Angelo Ogbonna scored the dramatic winner against Liverpool with just seconds left on the clock.

It promises to be another memorable evening in the last ever cup tie to be played at the Boleyn Ground and Randolph feels his side stand a strong chance of reaching the semi-finals at Wembley.

Randolph said: “It is going to be a great atmosphere for the replay and the standout moments for me this year atmosphere wise have been the Liverpool and Tottenham games.

“It is going to be a special night and we fancy our chances against anybody. We are all looking forward to it.

“We are still only ninety minutes from playing at Wembley and it is the last ever cup match at the Boleyn Ground so it is going to be another special occasion.

“It was probably a bit too early for us to be thinking about Wembley after the first goal but we played well and it was a good afternoon.

“When you see a free-kick like that go in you start to think it is going to be your day but it was not meant to be and we settle for a replay.

“Dimi actually said after the game that he thought the free-kick was going wide but it caught the inside of the post and went in. It was a great free-kick.

“I think it was a foul for their goal but it was one of those things and we have got a second chance.”
