JON BRADY PREPARING SQUAD TO FACE 'ONE OF BEST YOUTH TEAMS IN THE WORLD'

The Cobblers under 18s coach looks ahead to Wednesday's FA Youth Cup tie at Arsenal

11 December 2018

Northampton Town under 18s coach Jon Brady says his side will have to overcome 'one of the best youth teams in the world' as he looks ahead to Wednesday's FA Youth Cup third round tie away at Arsenal.

“In the FA Cup there is always a bit of magic and on a one off night you never know what can happen,” he said.

“We’ve earned this opportunity and we are really looking forward to the challenge.

“We couldn’t have done any more in terms of our preparation and we are all excited and ready to go.

“The temperament of the group is good and they have got to be confident with what they have done so far this season.

“We will have to step up a few gears on the night because we are playing a Premier League side and in my opinion Arsenal probably have one of the best youth teams in the world.

“We have to approach the game with no fear and if all our players are at their best on the night and maybe a few of theirs have an off night then we might have a chance.

“We had a great test against Liverpool earlier on in the season and for the first half we gave them a really good game but we know we have to try and make sure that we are at that level for the full 90 minutes.”
