🗣️ Bowen | “Every game you play, you want to win”

Manager aiming for cup progress in Blackpool

13 January 2020

Tuesday night sees the Royals make the journey up to Blackpool – with the aim of getting through to the Fourth Round of the FA Cup, at the second time of asking.

A 2-2 draw against the Seasiders forced the replay at Bloomfield Road, and boss Mark Bowen is keen to keep that unbeaten run going and set up a home tie against either Cardiff or Carlisle.

“I’ll have a look at my options – we’ll see how the group recover that played against Forest and how the others are too,” Bowen said. “There will be changes, but we have to give the cup the respect it deserves.

“And like everyone in football, as a professional, every game you play you want to win. So we will have that attitude when we go up to Blackpool.

“There are players that are chomping at the bit to play and it might give an opportunity to some of those players who are waiting for their chance.

“We will have plenty of fans travelling up to Blackpool – and if they’re travelling up, we owe them the respect of going there and putting in a performance.”
