Speaking via the Express & Star, George said; "I’m massively looking forward to the game. We’re four games from Wembley and we believe we can win it. The important thing now is to bounce back from Saturday, beat Oldham and get through to Mansfield.

"Fleetwood was disappointing. I thought we showed glimpses of how we can play, but we’ve got to do it for 90 minutes, not passages. Now we have the chance to do that and to progress into the last 16.

“We gave the ball away too cheaply at times but we tried to play. If we continue to do that, the results will come. We’re not far away from getting a good run together and climbing the table. But sometimes you need a bit of luck to fall your way. I feel like we didn’t have that at Fleetwood."
