Tottenham striker Peter Crouch is determined to recreate the finest moment of his career by winning the FA Cup this season.
Harry Redknapp's men have defeated Peterborough and Leeds so far leading to a fifth round tie against Bolton on Sunday.
Crouch won the trophy in 2006 with Liverpool and is keen for a repeat performance with Spurs this term.
"When I was growing up the FA Cup was the biggest competition, it is a fantastic competition and going all the way with Liverpool and finally lifting the trophy was probably the best moment of my career and I would love to repeat that with Tottenham," he said.
"We have all got the belief that we can do well this year.
"On our day we can beat anyone and we will be looking to make sure we can do as well as we can in the league but the FA Cup is a priority as well."
Spurs have not won the FA Cup since 1991 when Paul Gascoigne was famously carried off on a stretcher after a serious knee injury.
"It was a long time ago and it's about time we got there again," said Spurs boss Redknapp.
"We've got a good chance, so it's an important game for us, important we stay in the cup, don't get beat there Sunday.
"Whatever it takes to get through to the next round we'll do, and then we're in there with a chance. That's what we're looking to do, we want to get to Wembley this year, it's a great day for the club, to go to the cup final."
