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.
