What the managers are saying

Tony Pulis (Middlesbrough): “Tuesday night is a big game for us – a game which hopefully we’ll get a good crowd there, we’ll need a good crowd there and we’ll need everybody getting behind us.

“Fingers crossed we can put in a performance that can win the game for us.”

Nigel Clough (Burton):  “I still can’t quite believe Burton Albion are in the last eight of a major cup competition.

“We haven’t had too much opportunity to create history. The draw could have been kinder. It is a tough one but it is winnable.

“I can’t help thinking how good it would be if we could get one step further.”
