John Ward: Blues trip will lift the fans

The Pirates knocked out Crawley in a second-round replay on Wednesday night and then beat Exeter three days later and Ward says his players cannot wait to head to St Andrew's.

"We've got to recover now and we've got a treat on Tuesday - I've got to call it that," he said. "Because that is all it is. It is a treat to go to Birmingham and I'm sure that will lift people.

"Not only have we got to go there we've got to get on a bus on Friday and go to York. It is great, it's alright when you're winning.

"We've had three defeats in 16 games so momentum has been building for a while.

"We've now got two more games in the next few days to try and do it all over again. That is the footballers' life and if you ask that lot in there they are happy to play.

"I don't think anybody will be missing on Tuesday, they are ready for their treat. "
