A week after finding himself on the wrong end of a headbutt from Newcastle boss Alan Pardew, David Meyler left his former club Sunderland feeling black and blue as three goals in nine second-half minutes booked Hull's trip to Wembley.

Meyler headbutted the corner flag in celebration after sweeping home the second of his side's three quickfire strikes which turned a largely dismal FA Cup quarter-final into one of great celebration for the home side who cantered to a 3-0 win.

"The week I've had is irrelevant, to score is a great feeling," Meyler told Sky Sports News.

"To be able to contribute to a win in a FA Cup quarter-final and get to the semi-final is marvellous.

"It's been a hectic week, I've been everywhere for the wrong reason.

"I just took it in my stride and I'm lucky that I have my family behind me, it's been hard but it's done and dusted.

"It was just a bit of banter, my buddy back home 'Kellogs' said 'oh for the craic you should do it' and for the banter I did it, it's nothing personal or anything like that. It's just bit of craic."
