Kirk Broadfoot excited at the prospect of making his FA Cup debut when Blackpool face Fulham
Kirk Broadfoot is excited at the prospect of making his FA Cup debut when Blackpool face Fulham.
The 28-year-old is expected to be in Michael Appleton's side at Craven Cottage and the defender is hoping to test himself against Dimitar Berbatov once again. The ex-Rangers centre-back has featured in the Champions League during his time in Glasgow - and kept Berbatov quiet when the Light Blues welcomed Manchester United to Ibrox in 2010 - but appearing in the oldest knockout competition in the world is still something to savour for the Scot.
"It's a big trophy and a competition that I have always watched when I was in Scotland," he told Blackpool's official website.
"I'm really looking forward to it. It's always good to play against a team like Fulham and to test yourself against some of the best players in the world - and you can definitely say that about the likes of Berbatov. He's definitely up there.
"We'll go there looking to do well. It will be a difficult game and obviously Fulham are favourites, but I know the manager will have us well drilled and ready to go."
