Danny Simpson desperate for FA Cup win over Derby

Leicester take on Derby in FA Cup fourth round replay
Claudio Ranieri's side are just a point above the Premier League relegation zone after Sunday's 3-0 defeat to Manchester United.
It was their fourth straight loss – with Leicester yet to score a league goal in 2017 – and Simpson hopes a cup win will prepare them for their trip to the Liberty Stadium on Sunday.
"Sunday is big, I get that, but I want to play Wednesday – we need a win," Simpson said.

"I know it is not the league but we need a win. Maybe Wednesday can help with our confidence. It is a big game.
