Hereford Are Beatable Said Coldfield Manager


Sutton Coldfield manager Neil Tooth has said that tomorrow's FA Cup game against Hereford is a huge game for everybody involved but they are beatable.

"We are all excited," Tooth told the Sutton Coldfield Observer.

"Not only is it a chance to win prize money but we are playing one of the biggest teams in non-league. Their fans turn up in their numbers and they might bring 700-800.

"The FA Cup will bring in extra numbers. It is the best cup competition in the world and gives teams the chance to play anyone. Chasetown have got to the third round before and Worcester played at Coventry. It would be great to have a cup run.

"At the end of the day they are in the league below us. On form, we probably aren't the favourites but in terms of levels we are.

"It will be a tough match. I watched their replay against Romulus and they are a strong team. They have won seven out of seven in their league and are looking to climb leagues and get back up to where they were as soon as possible. I am sure they have a good budget but they are beatable.

"We won't focus too much on the opposition. We have been pretty woeful recently so we need to sort ourselves out. Form goes out of the window in the cup, it is all down to whoever is the best on the day and the magic of the cup."
