According to Luka Milivojevic, the supporters were magnificent to cheer for their team as they go to the FA Cup Quarterfinals.

Crystal Palace defeated Doncaster Rovers 2-0 to book their place in the quarterfinals of the Fa cup.

And for captain Luka Milivojevic part of their success was thanks to the fans who supported their team at Keepmoat Stadium.

“I think they [Doncaster] played well, I think it wasn’t easy to play today against them but we showed that extra quality,” Milivojevic told the club’s official website.

“We scored two nice goals. We had two or three second-half chances, we didn’t add to the goals but in the end, we are so happy we won away and I must say, a big thanks to our fans.”

“Many of them came today to give us support and we as players [and] as a club are so proud to have them behind us,” he added.

“Today we came and played against a team who are playing in League One and they made the full trip and we’re going to do everything to bring them to Wembley.”

“If we can repeat something of what we did a few years ago and play in a final, [that] would be great but let’s go step by step,” he continued.

“Our aim in the FA Cup is to try and get to the semi-final and then the final. It won’t be easy, there are a lot of good teams to play against.”

“We don’t fear anyone of course but there is one team that you don’t want, Man City. But you never know. What happens in the draw will happen and we’re looking forward to the cup, of course,” the captain continued.

“For me, the Premier League is the priority of course. It’s very tight down there! There are 10 or 11 games until the end of the season and many points are there. It’ll be tough, it’ll be hard, but that’s the priority.”
