All eyes will be on the fourth round draw of the Carling Cup tomorrow afternoon but one Swansea City player is hoping to prove a former club wrong.
Released by Spurs in 2001 after failing to secure a first team place Mark Gower is relishing the prospect of facing his former employers and last seasons Carling Cup winners Tottenham Hotspur. As a lifelong fan of the White Hart lane outfit the Edmonton born midfielder will be hoping that the draw will be kind to Swansea and that the reward for beating rivals Cardiff City in the third round will be a lucrative draw for his new club.
However the former Southend man has not lost focus at the real priority of the leauge campaign and start picking points up starting with Reading tomorrow afternoon.
Gower Told The SWEP
|'You want one or the other. Some people either want a Premier League side or one of the lesser teams at home.You don't really want a Championship side.Some fans would want someone like Rotherham - no disrespect to them - because they are low down in League Two and we would go into it as favorites.'|
'When I was at Southend we drew Spurs twice away in the FA Cup and Carling Cup. Spurs at the Liberty would be a great occasion - I wouldn't grumble at that.That would be a special game for me because my family are all Spurs supporters.We will all have our eyes on the draw but the Reading game is massive.We need to focus on the league as that is our main priority.'
'Tuesday was a nice distraction but it's back to the bread and butter of the league now.Reading play a high-tempo game. They enjoyed a few seasons in the Premier League and they are very good at moving the ball around.First and foremost, although beating Cardiff in the Carling Cup was great, we have to stay in this league. By doing that we have to get some victories on the board and picking up points at places like Reading.'
