Jerome hopes cup can cheer Blues

Blues saw an unbeaten run of five matches in all competitions come

to an end on Tuesday when they slipped to a disappointing 2-0

defeat at the hands of Newcastle. The Premier League takes a

backseat now, though, as League One side Wednesday head to St

Andrew’s on Saturday, before Arsenal await at Wembley next weekend.

“We’ve got a break from the league now with the FA Cup and we’ve

got the big one at Wembley the week after,” Jerome told the club’s

website. “On Saturday hopefully we can put in a good performance

and pick up a bit of confidence for the cup final. “As long as we

get this hangover out of our system, sooner rather than later, we

can go into the cup final with a smile on our face and to do

ourselves proud.”
