Millwall target Hanson eyes FA Cup upset with Bradford

JAMES Hanson is hoping to show Millwall what they're missing when Bradford City travel to The Den in the third round of the FA Cup tomorrow.

The big striker was on the Lions' radar in the summer and they could yet make a move for him in January if he impresses during Saturday's clash in SE16.

The Bantams are unbeaten in their last nine fixtures and progressed to the third round of the competition by beating Dartford 4-1 in December.

Hanson said: "They were (looking at me) and it would be nice to go there and build on the last two performances.

"There's no better place to go than Millwall, hopefully get a goal and a win. The gaffer will say we've got nothing to lose.

"It's nice to be fifth in the league going into the game because that takes the pressure right off us – we can enjoy it and probably cause an upset.

"After the Dartford game, it was always the aim for the club to be in and around the play offs by the time we played Millwall so we could all enjoy it.

"You look round training now, everyone's buzzing and really looking forward to it."

Plus you can get more advise from our other " RS" team- Foxy, Jim1222, Jim28, CrawleyLion, Norris, MfcLion, Lionheart & STORMIN' when you want it. ( NOLU, WDC )

    It's a true underdog story here....
    The minnows of Millwall hosting the recent cup finalists of Bradford...

    That's the right way to write the story yeah?

    Who wants to bet that if Easter starts/plays, he will score?

    He says 'there's no better place to go than millwall' and the rest is complete nonsense. Sounds like he wants to be here if you ask me...and if they beat us, I don't think it would be an upset tbh...

    Realistically we will be lucky to get any result against these! sad state of affairs to say something like this!

    Just checked the odds for winning the cup millwall 225/1 Bradford 500/1 I know where my money would go haha!

    I will have Easter and Hamlin to score and Bradford to nick it.

    He has scored 6 goals this season so not exactly prolific striker we are looking for? I'd prefer to see us sign a player like Eoin Doyle, but we probably can not afford him...

    I expect a bore draw at most with the current squad and very lucky manager, who by his dismal record should have gone by now.
