ROB Hulse admitted there was a hint of fortune about his first Millwall goal – but the QPR loanee was just glad to progress to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.

Hulse's improbable cross-shot looped inside the far post to give the Lions a two-goal lead in their 3-0 win over Luton Town in the fifth round on Saturday.

But the 33-year-old was more pleased with the final result than his own personal exploits. He said: "James Henry put in a good ball but it was just a bit loopy for me to head it on target.

"It was just one of those that you try it and some days it goes wide or over, but luckily it has gone in for me on Saturday. I was pleased for the lads.

"We worked hard and in the end a little bit of quality has shown through. We knew it would be a very difficult tie. Luton are a good side and they have knocked some good sides out.

"We knew we had to come here and match them for workrate. We're just pleased to get through."

Millwall will face Blackburn Rovers at The Den in the last eight of the competition with a place in a Wembley semi-final at stake and Hulse revealed he has yet to play in the national stadium.

"I've never played at Wembley so it would be lovely to play there," he said. "I've played at Cardiff in the Millennium Stadium but this is the furthest I've ever been in the cup."
