Keogh: No pressure on Millwall in cup

STRIKER Andy Keogh believes Millwall's FA Cup tie with Bolton is a 'no-pressure' game.

The Republic of Ireland international, who scored his first goal for the club in the midweek 2-2 draw at Brighton, insists the Lions remain focused on their relegation battle in the Championship – despite the reward of a quater-final place on offer against the Trotters.

"It's going to be a tough game, regardless of what team they put out," he told the club's official website.

"I think we'll just go out there and enjoy it. The FA Cup has no real bearing on our season – it would be nice to get into the next round, but we'd rather have three points against Middlesbrough on Tuesday night.

"It's a no-pressure game. It's an opportunity for the lads to test themselves against a higher quality of opposition. Of course it would be nice to be one game away from Wembley and anything can happen on Saturday."
