Dougie Freedman has said that the players have earnt the right to go to Old Trafford and come away better players.

Speaking to the South London Press despite all the talk of enjoying ourselves, and enjoying the occasion Freedman has said our focus is doing our best to get to the Semi Final.

‘I’ve told my players to go there and come away better players. This is an experience you have to soak up, enjoy it, you’ve got to work hard and be proud of your performance. They’ve earnt the right to play at Old Trafford. We’ve going to United and we’re playing for a place in the semi finals which is exciting.’

Whilst Freedman says it’s all about the players, he’s also going to relish the occasion as manager.

‘I’m very early in my management career, and it’s something I’m looking forward to, but I’m not going to be fazed. It’s not about me testing myself.’
