💬 Pierce Sweeney previews Bradford FA Cup replay

Defender's thoughts on Tuesday's rearranged fixture

29 November 2021

Pierce Sweeney believes the depth of the City squad will help them progress to the second round of the FA Cup, in Tuesday's rearranged fixture with Bradford City.

Speaking ahead of the replay, the 26-year old said: 

"It's frustrating that we have to play it but it's an opportunity to go through to the next round. We've got a decent squad with lot of players chomping at the bit for game time, so we'll be putting out a strong side to win the game."

It'll be the fourth time City have played Bradford this season, but Sweeney highlighted the professionalism shown in that time, despite the outcome of the first fixture.

"We know each other inside out now but it still remains to be seen what team they'll put out. There's a high level of respect between the two teams and it should be a good game with both teams desperate for a place in the next round."
