Billy's Knott afraid of League 1 teams

12 November 2013

Billy Knott has challenged his team-mates to go one step further than Saturday and knock-out higher opposition.

. here Fancy Billy to break the deadlock against the Robins? Back the midfielder at 16/1

The on-loan Sunderland midfielder continues to excel in the Wanderers’ midfield and will be looking to add to his goal in the last round when the Blues outplayed Bristol City to run out 2-1 winners.

He added: “The incentive to play at Wembley is there and we’re only three or four games away.”

“We’ve gone behind but we’ve fought back and we’ve passed the ball really well. If we can take that into Tuesday then we’ll beat a lot of teams.”

“(Anthony) Granty’s hit a great strike – he was with me at Chelsea. He’s a good player and hit one - I don’t think many keepers, if any, are going to save that!

He said: “I think a few of the boys were disappointed we didn’t win but it’s happened and we’ll need to perform in the replay.

Knott & co take on League 1 Swindon Town in the JPT area quarter-final tonight after impressing in a 1-1 draw with fellow third-tier side Crewe Alexandra in the first round of the FA Cup at the weekend.
