Mark Bradley: Keen to pile misery on Bantams

The Millers, without a win in five matches, put their Yorkshire rivals to the sword early on last season, winning 4-0 on the Bantams' first visit to their new home, and then won the reverse fixture in April to all-but seal promotion.

There is no love lost between the two sides, who have been in the same league for 12 of the last 13 seasons, and Bradley wants another victory, not only to give the supporters bragging rights, but also to kick-start their stuttering league form.

"It is obviously a big competition in England and with it being a local derby hopefully we can put on a good show, get a win and get into the next round which will give us confidence for the league," he told Press Association Sport.

"We love that it's a local derby and a big game with hopefully a big crowd.

"We know it's a big game with the reaction to us beating them 4-0 last year, so hopefully it will be a great atmosphere and we can get a similar result."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
