'If It's Football, It's Vital'

League Cup Round Four Win Reaction



City head into November having secured a place in the League Cup Quarter Finals and unbeaten on all fronts except for extra time at the swamp. Here's the Scunthorpe 5-1 gaffers reaction...

Sparky Hughes:

'There were lots of positives to come out of the game tonight when we played with the necessary intensity and tempo that made it difficult for Scunthorpe. We put on plenty of pressure and in the end they were not able to cope with it and we ran out comfortable winners.'

Next stop, Birmingham...

'Roque and others have given me food or thought. That is why we brought so many good players to the club. A strong squad and competition drives a team forward. We are improving the standard and the depth.

'Kolo Toure and Emmanuel Adebayor, who had a back spasm, should be back for the trip to Birmingham. Wayne Bridge has a little bit of an issue with his knee but in terms of the weekend should be ok. Touch wood I should have almost a full length squad to choose from. It was good that we could also get a rest into Craig Bellamy and give Carlos Tevez and Gareth Barry a rest.'

Nigel Adkins:

'We've taken a lot of respect from the team that Mark Hughes has put out. They've come out to do the business and their intention is to win the tournament, and they've got every chance of doing that.

'City's quality shone through in the second half...their work rate was phenomenal while their quality was top drawer.'

Sparky remaining determined but looking delighted at the squad's progress on the video. He must be thrilled by this season's start.
