Brunt taking interest in quarter-final

09 March 2011 11:00
West Brom captain Chris Brunt will be watching the result between Arsenal and Manchester United in the FA Cup quarter-finals as the outcome will dictate when the Baggies next play. If the FA Cup tie is drawn a replay would mean West Brom's next game against the Gunners on March 19 would be postponed. That would leave Roy Hodgson's side, who won at relegation rivals Birmingham on Saturday, next in action at home to Liverpool on April 2. "We want it settled because it would mean a month without a game and that's a long time, especially coming off the back of the win we've just had," Brunt told the club website, "We want the next game to come around because of the little run we're on with six points from our last four games. A lot of the lads will be away for internationals the week after we're due to play Arsenal so, if the worst comes to the worst and the Arsenal match is called off, at least a lot of the lads will have had a little bit of football. "But it would be a long time to be training without a match and with the results we've had lately, we just want to play the next match and keep on ticking over because, at the moment, we are doing OK."
