FA CUP: Reaction From Gaffer & Players

11 November 2014

Manager Lee Johnson and defensive players Brian Wilson and Paul Rachubka have had their say on the FA Cup second round clash against either Weston-Super-Mare or Doncaster Rovers.

The original tie between the pair was called off on Saturday due to a waterlogged pitch with the tie now set to take place on November 18.

Johnson, who will keep a keen eye on the tie, said: "It's a good tie because it is at home. You would expect it to be Doncaster but there is always that possibility of it being Weston-Super-Mare. 

"We would love to play Weston-Super-Mare for the glamour of the cup but realistically it will be Doncaster. We know what they are about because they are a tough test in our league. 

"It's also nice because you have all the history with Paul Dickov being manager here and their is a local public interest. Hopefully a lot of people come down because we know there could be a good prize in round three."

Wilson added: "It could have been a better draw. If you are a betting man you would fancy Doncaster to get through. We know what they are like because we faced them at the start of the season and got a good victory at there place so we will see.

"We haven't had an easy draw in any competition yet but we know no games are easy so we look forward to facing whoever wins the tie."

Rachubka said: "It's a home draw which we wanted because we can bring them back to our fortress at SportsDirect.com Park. It'll be a tough game, whoever we play, but we know that on our day we can beat any team."

Details for the second round tie will be released in due course.
