Defender wants to be in the FA Cup third round for the first time
Ryan Cresswell is hoping to write some history in the FA Cup this season – and reach the third round for the first time in his career.
He has never got further than the second round, but Ryan will be hoping to get one over on his former club and make sure Blues are in the hat for the third round draw.
Ryan said: “I’m hoping to write some history. Hopefully we can get as far as we can and just like the fans, I want a big tie at an away ground so we can go and really enjoy it.
“I haven’t experienced it yet, but hopefully we can do it this season. I got to the second round with Bury.
“But hopefully we can beat them on Saturday because everyone at the Club wants the buzz of a big time home or away.”
Ryan enjoyed his time at Gigg Lane working under former boss Alan Knill, and having watched their progress this season, he knows it’s going to be a tough game on Saturday.
Bury were struggling at the start of the season but since the arrival of new boss Kevin Blackwell results have improved.
“They started off the season pretty poorly and obviously I always keep and eye on them because they are a former club,” the 24-year-old said.
“Lately they have come into some results but hopefully that won’t be the case on Saturday and we can get a good result and move into the next round.
“I spent two years there and enjoyed my time, it was a big learning curve in my career. I’m looking forward to going back.”
