Mowbray hoping for home tie

Published Add your comment

Tony Mowbray fancies Middlesbrough's chances of beating a Barclays Premier League team to an FA Cup quarter-final place as Boro edged in to the last 16 at the expense of plucky Aldershot with a 2-1 victory at the Riverside.

With two minutes remaining at the Riverside Stadium, Shots striker Danny Hylton scored his eighth FA Cup goal in four games following Lukas Jutkiewicz's late opener. Hylton still leads the scoring charts but Jutkiewicz ensured he will not add to his tally by sparing Boro a tiring trip to Hampshire with a winner five minutes into stoppage time.

Mowbray said: "Managers only ever want a home tie and in an ideal world it wouldn't be someone from our league. I'd like to play a Premier League side or one of the lower-league teams who've done well. The FA Cup starts getting exciting in the fifth round as you're one game away from the quarter-finals.
