Post Hull: Seb eyes replay victory

Having steadied the ship upon his return from suspension at the KC Stadium, Seb Bassong was delighted to grab a clean sheet and send the Tigers back to SJP for a replay. However the French Under 21 star is already looking ahead to a potential cup run and the next round. He said:

'The FA Cup is world famous. When I was a child in France, I always watched the final. No matter what country you are from, you can watch this competition all around the world, and everybody talks about it. It's very exciting and for me, it is a dream come true to play in it. It will be good to keep that dream going against Hull.

We are already looking forward as the FA Cup is important for us this season. It's in our hands. We're still in the competition and we have to happy with the draw. Now Hull will have to come to Newcastle and we will make it very hard for them to get into the next round.

The suspension was frustrating for me and I wanted to come back and have a good game. It was good to be back and playing after suspension, and it was a good result to come back with. When you keep a clean sheet, then you have done your job. If we can continue to keep it tight and not concede, we will stay in it [the cup] longer.'
