Davies hopes to end Wembley jinx

Last Updated: Wed, 26 Feb 2014 14:03

Curtis Davies is finally hoping to make his Wembley dream come true with Hull after missing out on five previous occasions.

The central defender has made it to Wembley with Aston Villa, West Brom and Birmingham in his career to date but for one reason or another he has yet to play at the venue.

Davies is now hoping to finally get the chance to play there after the Tigers defeated Brighton to set up a quarter-final date with Sunderland.

It leaves Steve Bruce's men just 90 minutes away from a semi-final at Wembley, and Davies does not want to miss out for a sixth time.

"You go throughout your whole career and not many people can say they have played in an FA Cup semi-final and I want to be one of those people," said Davies.

"It would be massive. I've missed out on playing at Wembley five times with West Brom, Villa and Birmingham. I have been there, but not managed to play. I'd like to actually be on the pitch for once and not just a spectator.

"I was injured once, cup-tied once and 'pied off' another time. Fingers crossed, it will be sixth time lucky, but obviously we need to get through the Sunderland game first."
