ALBION goalkeeper Tim Krul is hoping to keep his FA Cup run going in the quarter-finals away to Manchester United later this month.

The Dutchman has yet to make a Premier League appearance for the Seagulls, due to the outstanding form of Australian No.1 Mathew Ryan, but he has played in every round of the FA Cup so far.

Krul, who kept up to speed in a 1-1 draw for the under-23s against Southampton at the Amex last night, said: “It’s an exciting tie to look forward to. We’ve had a good run up to now.

"I think we’ve got a great squad and we are showing that. The boys are ready, not just the first eleven but also the fringe players.

“I’ll keep the pressure on and show that I am ready every opportunity I get.”

Albion still have a seven point cushion over the relegation zone after Manchester United came from 2-0 down to win 3-2 at depleted Crystal Palace with a stoppage-time strike by Nemanja Matic.
