PNE Player: Simon Grayson Hoping For First Round Cup Repeat

11 August 2014

Simon Grayson is hoping that his side can replicate their result of last year in the first round of the Capital One Cup tomorrow night.

Everyone associated with the Club will remember this stage last season, with the memorable victory over local rivals Blackpool, and Simon is hoping for a similar result this time around. 

"Last year, it was a fantastic night for the football club, obviously that's in the past, well in terms of how we can affect results, everyone will remember that for many years to come but obviously we move onto the next one now. 

"Rochdale did ever so well last year, got promotion under their belt, disappointed probably at the weekend not winning at the weekend or getting a positive result but these games come thick and fast now. 

"From our point of view we want to get a result, one or two things we just need to work on a little bit from the weekend but these things will come over the next few weeks." 

To hear more from the manager on his thoughts ahead of tomorrow's cup tie, the selection headaches caused by such a competitive squad and more, go to PNE Player now.
