Cup humiliation makes Moyes wary

Published Add your comment

Manager David Moyes will use the memory of his first ignominious FA Cup experience with Everton as motivation for Monday's trip to Cheltenham.

The Scot had been in charge at Goodison Park for 10 months when he took his side to Shrewsbury in the third round and saw former Toffees' defender Kevin Ratcliffe, in charge of a side 80 places below in the lower reaches of the then third division, get the better of him.

"We went out then so it's happened to us in the past. We have to make sure it doesn't happen - although we were trying to do that then as well," he said.
