Cadogan: Up for the cup
Crystal Palace starlet Kieron Cadogan insists the Championship strugglers will be giving their all against Coventry in the FA Cup.
The Eagles are currently third from bottom in the table, but gave their survival hopes a shot in the arm with a 1-0 win over Preston on Monday.
Cadogan, who has been recalled to the side following George Burley's exit, insists this weekend's clash at The Ricoh will not distract the team from their battle against the drop.
"We've got to treat every game as if it's our last right now," he told skysports.com.
"I'm sure the team would like a nice run in the cup.
"It's an opportunity to play against Premier League sides. I'm sure that'll be a great incentive for us."
Cadogan has expressed his frustration at being overlooked by ex-manager Burley and he is now looking to impress in order to secure his future.
The 20-year-old is out of contract in the summer and, having come through the ranks at Selhurst Park, is keen to secure fresh terms.
"I just want to be playing," he continued. "It was quite frustrating being out of the squad.
"You've got to keep your head up and keep working hard to get back in.
"I've come through the Palace ranks. I love the club.
"I just want to try and sort something out and stay and we'll take it from there."
