Cup Fever In Bradford But It's Northampton Before Arsenal!

12 November 2012 01:46
Bradford City host the Cobblers in Tuesday night's FA Cup 1st Round replay.

Cup fever has broken out in West Yorkshire this week but it is the League Cup tie against Arsenal next month that has had fans queuing around the block to ensure their tickets.

The Bantams are experiencing some good times after a decade in the doldrums, their last eight place in the Capital One Cup having come on the back of a good start to the League Two season.

Their next assignment, however, is the midweek clash against Aidy Boothroyd's side, the third meeting between the two teams in the past few weeks.

City won at Sixfields in the league before the first FA Cup match was drawn. Town, though, will be in fine fettle after a battling point at York was followed up by Saturday's Akinfenwa-inspired win away to Accrington.
