Carlisle Want Blues Scalp
United's player coach urges his side to enjoy FA Cup trip to Goodison.
Carlisle United's player coach has urged his side to enjoy their FA Cup clash at Everton but stay confident.
The League One side visit Goodison for the third round of the competition having beaten Morecambe and Norwich City along the way.
"First and foremost, we've got to go out there and enjoy it," said Graham Kavanagh in his pre-match press conference. "We've earned the right to play there with two good victories in the previous rounds.
"It'll be a big occasion, with a big crowd at a big Premier League team and we'll be looking to take the scalp."
Kavanagh says it is difficult to single out a danger man from the Everton squad because all pose a big threat to his side.
United's player coach also admires the spirit in the Blues camp.
"They've got players like Fellaini, Saha, Cahill and Pienaar all over the park who are capable of winning the game and scoring a goal.
"They're string at the back, have a very good goalkeeper and are a side that really work for each others and have that never say die spirit that's worked so well under David Moyes," he continued. "We have to match that but not worry about any individual and concentrate on our own performance and tray and put the pressure on them."
The Carlisle player coach is a Liverpool fan so it is a chance for him to beat the Reds Merseyside counterparts but he insists he won't get carried away with rivalry.
"Being a Liverpool fan doesn't give the game any bigger edge for me. If we'd been playing Liverpool I would have been exactly the same, wanting to win the game.
"It'll be a great day and a great experience, it's an old fashioned style stadium with plenty of history. It is so close to the pitch you really get the feel of the atmosphere and hopefully we'll remember that for all the right reasons."
