The Hatters Told To Ignore Villa - For Now
Stockport County manager Jim Gannon has told his team to forget about any talk of facing Aston Villa in the FA Cup and to focus instead on getting passed Gillingham in their replay. That said, the Hatters boss would love to face MON's side!
Gannon, a name to watch out for in the future, he isn't afraid to ruffle feathers but he is doing great things at County, told their official website: 'It's a great draw against a top-four Premiership side with a great manager and some fantastic young players. I have the utmost respect for Martin O'Neill and it would be great to pit my wits against him.'
Adding, 'It will also be great for our young players to measure themselves against Villa's talented players.'
Come on County, I SO want us to face them at Edgeley Road, it will make for a great cup tie and by no means a racing certainty!
The game v County or Gillingham will be played on the weekend of 3-4 January 2009.
