Seamus Coleman hopes his Everton team-mates can put to one side their stuttering league form and get some joy in the FA Cup this week.

Beaten 1-0 by West Brom in yet another disappointing home display last weekend, the Toffees take a break from the league to prepare for Saturday's Cup tie away to Bournemouth.

"We've got to look to the FA Cup at the weekend and do the best we can. We'd love another cup run. We enjoyed the Capital One Cup this year and to get to Wembley would be special," said Coleman.

"We'll look to win at Bournemouth and improve for the rest of the season. It's important to finish the campaign strongly - for us as professionals, for the club we represent and for the fans."

Meanwhile, Irish keeper Stephen Henderson is also targeting a good run as he tries to steer Charlton Athletic away from the relegation zone in the Championship. "We need six wins," says Dubliner Henderson, who kept a clean sheet in last week's draw with Cardiff.

"It's difficult. We're very aware of that but we've just got to keep going. The lads haven't chucked the towel in. We've just got to keep going and hopefully our luck will turn soon."
