Wright wants to keep momentum going

Bailey Wright has reiterated the importance of the Emirates FA Cup and wants City to extend their unbeaten run in the competition.

Huddersfield Town of the Premier League are City’s opponents in the Third Round on Saturday (January 5th, 5.30pm KO).

And Wright wants his teammates to take their league form and momentum through to the cup tie at Ashton Gate.

He made his first Robins appearance for nine months in the New Year’s Day win at Stoke City, after an injury he sustained back in the 2017/18 campaign.

Now the club captain is back and ready to help the team on the pitch for the second half of the season.

Wright said: “The FA Cup is an important one. Last season we had a big run in the Carabao Cup but we’re out of it this time, so now it’s all about the FA Cup.

“We went out of it early last season so we want to see how far we can go in the competition this time. Competition for places is strong, whether there are changes or not we will have a strong squad because we have depth.

“The FA Cup is another great chance to test ourselves against a Premier League opposition and see what we can put together. It’s another opportunity to win a game, in front of our own fans and we want to keep this winning run going.

“The league is always priority but the FA Cup is important to keep the momentum.”

Tickets remain on sale for tomorrow's cup showdown.
