Dickov in the mood for cup revenge
Date published: 28 November 2012
ATHLETIC boss Paul Dickov bemoaned his side’s lack of attacking prowess on an off-night for key striker Jose Baxter at Doncaster.
But he saw promising signs ahead of the teams meeting again on Saturday.
“We are really frustrated,” said Dickov.
“We more than matched a team up near the top of the league without being at our best, again.
“We take a lot of encouragement. So let’s get them to Boundary Park and have a go.”
Dickov also made it absolutely clear to his players how important the FA Cup second-round tie against Doncaster is.
”It is our cup final on Saturday,” said the manager. “I said that to the boys. I don’t care where they have been, who they have played for, what they have done or where they want to go. We will be up for it.”
