Edwards hopeful of 'little bit of cup magic'


City at home, then.

If any team has aspirations of winning a major trophy then you’ve got to beat the best. So why not do it now, tonight, at the fifth round stage.

After progressing against Bolton and Everton, it’s the holders under the lights a Kenilworth Road for the Hatters and Rob Edwards.

What better place to take on the best of the best. And, after running Pep Guardiola’s men close the last time they came to town in December, Edwards knows that does give his team a chance.

“It does give us confidence and we believe in ourselves anyway,” the boss said at his Monday press call.

“We always recognise and respect the opposition that we’re going up against. We’ve probably, in the last couple of games, come up against, along with Arsenal at the moment, you’d say two of the best three sides in the country.

“It’s going to be really, really difficult, we know that, but we always believe, we always do otherwise it’s hopeless isn’t it?

“What’s the point in turning up? Let’s hope there’s a little bit of magic of the FA Cup, but we’ll certainly give it everything. I think everyone knows City’s players pretty well, almost all of their games are on the TV, and everyone knows them.

“We have played against them as well, but we’ll do all the work on them as we do for every single game anyway, and try to provide the players with the right amount of information going into it. There's some fascinating stuff, some brilliant things, and I think it’s good as there’ll be some different stuff to the first game now, so really looking forward to it.”

Luton v Man City is live on ITV tonight at 8pm with live commentary on Hatters Player.
