Coleman Wants Wembley For Fans

by Daniel Alston @efc_danalston

Seamus Coleman says Everton are determined to secure a Wembley return – and a chance to make amends to the fans.

The Blues take on Wigan at Goodison Park this Saturday, with a place in the last four at the national stadium on offer.

If triumphant against the Latics, it would present the Blues with a fourth Wembley appearance in as many seasons - but their last visit is one the Blues hope to avenge.

On a bittersweet afternoon in London, Nikica Jelavic put David Moyes' side ahead against Liverpool, only for two second-half goals to dump Everton out of the competition.

Republic of Ireland international Coleman emerged from the bench at 1-1 that sunny afternoon and explained why the squad hope to take the supporters back to the capital this time around.

He told evertontv: "It was a disappointing day for everyone involved and it took a while for us to get out of our system.

"Hopefully we can get past Wigan on Saturday to get back there for the fans and make it a good year.

"The way we've been going so far, it's been one game at a time. But before the Oldham game, we knew the draw was a home tie so it was a big incentive. Thankfully we got through okay.

"This club is the fans' life and they'd give anything to see us win a trophy, just like we would. But we have to be professional about it. Anything can happen in the cups - look at Bradford in the League Cup knocking big teams out.

"We have to be on guard all the time. First and foremost, we need to do a professional job this week in training and prepare right for the game against Wigan."

Tickets for Saturday's 12.45pm kick-off are still available.

Simply visit the Goodison Park Box Office, call 0871 663 1878 or click here to secure your seat.
