Cardiff Star Only Has Eyes For Boro
Cardiff City's veteran striker only has eyes for an FA Cup showdown with his former club Middlesborough after the two clubs were drawn against each other for a potential cup quarter final.
First Middlesborough must overcome Championship side Sheffield United after a 0-0 draw saw the teams require a replay to decide who faces Cardiff City next.
Cardiff striker Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink produced an inspired performance and stunning goal in City's 2-0 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers to seal their place in the last 8. It's certainly Middlesborough the former Chelsea player is hoping to face:
'No disrespect to Sheffield United, but when the draw was made, I was instantly thinking about Middlesbrough.'
'It would be an emotional occasion if I was able to go back. The supporters were magnificent to me and I would love the opportunity to play in front of them again.'
Hasselbaink was a popular figure on Riverside, scoring 23 goals between 2004-06 before joining Charlton Athletic and then moving to Cardiff City.
