Sheffield United defender John Egan says getting to the FA Cup semi-final is more important than the day out at Wembley that comes with it.The Blades take on Championship rivals Blackburn in their quarter-final tie at Bramall Lane on Sunday knowing a win would send them to the national stadium.But Egan, who has been part of the Blades squad that has made it to the last eight of the famous cup competition for the third time in four seasons, says that is not the defining part of victory.“It is probably a bigger carrot to get to the semi-final than to Wembley to be honest,” he said.“We want to progress to the next round.

You have seen our cup games so far, we had a couple of close games against Wrexham and then beat Tottenham.“Every game has been close and we are looking forward to getting into the semi-final.“As footballers you want to win games.

Sometimes you go on a cup run and you get to a quarter-final and it opens up a bit. The main focus is to get to the semi-final.

We have put ourselves in this position.“Since I came I think we have got to three quarter-finals in the last few years. That is good going.
