Middlesbrough manager Tony Mowbray is hoping to steal a little of Martin O'Neill's "magic dust" as he plots an FA Cup shock.

The Sunderland manager has worked wonders since replacing Steve Bruce at the helm at the Stadium of Light in December, transforming the Black Cats' Barclays Premier League fortunes and raising hopes of an extended cup run.

Mowbray will attempt to inflict a rare bout of misery on the Ulsterman in Wednesday night's fourth-round replay at the Riverside Stadium, but admits he is envious of his counterpart's secret ingredient. He said: "Everybody in football looks at Martin and thinks, 'What is the ingredient?', not just me, anybody."
