Ross McCormack says Fulham are ready to "blow away" Sunderland in their FA Cup replay at Craven Cottage tonight.

The sides drew 0-0 in the initial tie at the Stadium of Light thanks to some fine saves from Fulham goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli, although Hugo Rodallega had a chance to win it for the Championship outfit when he hit a post late on.

And striker McCormack is confident the Cottagers can finish the job against the Black Cats and book a fifth-round trip to Bradford.

"It would be great to go through," McCormack, who has scored 11 goals this season, said.

"It's a good chance at Craven Cottage, where we've proved we can beat anyone - we can blow teams away and we'll definitely be looking to do that."

Fulham have recovered from a dismal start to the season since Kit Symons replaced Felix Magath as manager in September.

They were on a four-match unbeaten run until a 2-1 defeat at Blackburn on Saturday and McCormack is confident they can bounce back.

"We won't drop our heads," he added. "We've got a young team. We feel we're making good strides."
