The Semi-Final Awaits

West Ham manager Alan Curbishley and skipper Lucas Neill are both confident ahead of tonight's quarter final clash. Lucas Neill seems to sense this could be his best chance to win something before his career ends,

"We can see an opportunity to be in a cup final, in front of 80,00 people at Wembley. You play the game to get into a position to experience that kind of thing."

"You want to have cup finals, to give yourself the chance to win medals. I have had three or four semi-finals in my career and lost them all. Everton will be very tough but a slight edge we might have is that we are at home and I know Tim Cahill very well. Maybe I'll try and poison him!"

Alan Curbishley is also up for the challenge,

"We got a great start to the week at Blackburn. We feel the Carling Cup is a competition we should attack. A Premier League side will win the Carling Cup and we thought 'why not us?'

"Certainly here at West Ham we enjoy a good cup run and it keeps everything bubbling along. It will be an interesting night tomorrow. The crowd are up for it, we are up for it and Everton are going well. Something has got to give."
