Watford are not resting on their laurels ahead of this weekend’s FA Cup clash with Wolverhampton Wanderers, according to midfielder Will Hughes.

The former Derby County man said he is looking forward to the chance to create some memorable FA Cup moments of his own, but knows that Wolves will be tricky opponents, despite Watford beating them earlier in the season.

“The first moment that comes to mind is probably Gerrard in the final against West Ham,” said Hughes.

“I remember that quite vividly and I’ve never been this far in the FA Cup so I’m quite excited about it.

“At the moment they’re the best of the rest, the table proves that, so we’re not going to take for granted that we beat them earlier on in the season.

"It’s a semi-final, anything can happen.

“They’ve come on leaps and bounds and improved so it’s going to be a brilliant game with two brilliant teams.

"They’ve got a brilliant squad and you might be surprised at how well they’re doing, but it’s a game of details in the Premier League and they’ve obviously got it right."

Although Hughes has never made it to Wembley in the FA Cup before, he has played there in a Championship play-off final back in 2014 when his Derby side lost 1-0 to Queen’s Park Rangers. 
The 24-year-old said those painful memories will not be in his mind come Sunday afternoon.

He said: “I played in a play-off final there which didn’t really end too well for me, but the boys are experienced and I don’t think the occasion will come much into it.

“Obviously it hurt, but it won’t be in my mind come Sunday.”
