David Nugent believes Leicester City have a realistic chance of reaching their first FA Cup final for 43 years.
The Leicester striker – who picked up an FA Cup winners’ medal with Portsmouth four years ago – hit goal number 13 for the season to book a quarter-final trip to either Chelsea or Birmingham at Norwich City’s expense.
Nugent said: “I don’t want to be greedy but I don’t see why we can’t get to the FA Cup final now. Another game and we are at Wembley in the semis. I’m starting to get the buzz.
“It was a great goal. I have a lot of confidence. Ever since I’ve come back from Burnley I’ve grown in confidence. I’ve got 13 goals now and I’m looking for 20.
“They put us under a lot of pressure but we held out well and we deserved it. I hope this can be a kick-on for our season. The fans were awesome.
“The cup is a special competition. They sang their hearts out and pulled us through the last 10 minutes.’’
