Don´t fear United - Distin

Published Add your comment

Sylvain Distin has told his Portsmouth team-mates they have nothing to fear from Saturday´s FA Cup quarter-final trip to Manchester United.

Manager Harry Redknapp has described the tie against Sir Alex Ferguson´s treble-chasers as the draw from hell, but defender Distin insists the south-coast side are capable of causing an upset and booking their first semi-final since a 1992 defeat to Liverpool.

Former Manchester City star said: "Every season you see results that people call miracles. Teams go to Old Trafford thinking ´We are going to win´ and they fight from the first to the last second. That is what we have to do."
