Ridgewell dreaming of FA Cup final
With Villa set for their Carling Cup final showdown with Manchester United on February 28, Ridgewell sees no reason why the Blues cannot go on to play in the FA Cup final. After so far beating Nottingham Forest, Everton and Derby, manager Alex McLeish's side now head to Portsmouth for a sixth-round tie, the fourth successive occasion they have been drawn away. "We are doing it the hard way with these away ties, but as long as we keep winning I'm not too bothered," said Ridgewell in the Birmingham Mail. "If we just keep doing what we're doing then we're a match for anyone." Assessing recent final participants, Ridgewell added: "It shows teams can get to finals outside of the normal top four. Portsmouth did it, Cardiff, Millwall. We've just got to believe we can as well."
