“I was speaking to Richarlison earlier and chatting football and things and he was saying how desperate he is to play at Wembley and that is because of the history of Wembley.



“I am fortunate as a player. I have got to play there a lot and it is a magical place but we are two rounds, two games away from doing that.


“So, we treat Boreham Wood with respect.


“There are some tough teams whoever you are going to play in the draw for next round but that carrot is the one that we all have to aim towards.”
