Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson urges his team to "have a go" at clinching their first FA Cup trophy since 2004.

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has insisted that his team are determined to go all the way in the FA Cup this year.

The Red Devils take on West Ham United at Old Trafford this evening for a third-round replay following their 2-2 draw at Upton Park less than a fortnight ago.

"We want to try and have a go at this FA Cup," Ferguson told MUTV. "We haven't had a run for a long time, two or three years, and we have had some bad draws.

"We're at home tonight and we have got to take advantage of that. If we get through, we have got another home tie so there's a big incentive for the club to make sure we get through."

The North-West side have clinched the trophy 11 times but have not won the competition since 2004.
