Nigel's cup thoughts

12 November 2013

Nigel Clough would have liked to be facing either Bury or Cambridge United at Bramall Lane in the second round of the FA Cup, but insisted that the Blades will be ready regardless of the opposition.

Giving his reaction to Sunday's draw, Clough commented: "Obviously we would have preferred a home draw at this stage of the competition but we don't seem to be having much luck getting one.

"We have now got the chance to look at both Cambridge and Bury ahead of our second round clash and I've no doubt that whoever we face will be a tough proposition.

"I am sure the supporters will fancy Bury because it is certainly an easier trip, but we will be prepared whoever we face. Richard Money and Ronnie Jepson are two managers we know well."

Bury currently since in 22nd position in League Two, whilst Cambridge are six points clear at the top of the Skrill Conference Premier, having lost just one of their 17 league games to date.
