Brown: Nothing to fear in FA Cup

11 November 2013

Phil Brown says his players will have learnt a lesson from their last trip to the Proact Stadium

Phil Brown says his side will fear nothing when they head to Chesterfield for the second round of the FA Cup in three weeks.

Blues were drawn away to Chesterfield in yesterday’s draw on ITV having knocked out Morecambe in round one on Saturday.

And Brown says Saturday’s performance will give his side huge confidence heading to the Proact Stadium.

He said: “We have nothing to fear when going to Chesterfield because we went there earlier in the season and could have won the game.

“In the end we were undone by a 95th minute set piece. We showed on Saturday at Morecambe that we want to do well in this competition and there’s no reason why we can’t go to Chesterfield and win.

“I’m looking forward to the game because it will show me how far the team have come since pretty much the start of the season.

“We went there for our fourth league game but I feel everything is starting to come together now. The players will have learnt lessons from the last time we went and we’ll go there in a stronger position.”

While Brown is looking forward to trying to progress to the third round, he says all the focus will be on the four upcoming league games.

He added: “We’ve got four league games before we head to Chesterfield and they are all very important.

“We have to travel to Exeter City and Portsmouth and neither of those games will be easy, and we welcome York and Cheltenham at home.

“There’s a lot of football to be played between now and the second round, and hopefully we’ll go into that game full of confidence from the next four games.”
