Jones hoping for a home draw

Last updated : 18 February 2008 By Michael Morris
With City just one game away from Wembley Dave Jones would like a home draw in the cup to offere the best chance of progress.

When asked what draw he fancied he replied

"In all honesty I would like a home tie and I don't care who it is.

"If you're going to tell me it is going to be Manchester United then I'm sure the chairman would want to be away because it would be 80,000 people.

"That's a lot of money in the coffers, it would be on TV so there's more money so maybe somewhere along the line I might be able to nick some off him to help our cause."

Jones is hoping that his side of 2008 can create their own history by emulating the hereos of 1927, but he knows there's a long way to go.

"This football club in 1927 did brilliant but that's where it belongs. It's in the past in the museum," Jones added.

"I said to the players to try and make their own history at this club and that's what they've done.

"But all they've done is get into the next round of the competition, there is still a long, long way to go. We will keep ticking along and now we will get ready for the league campaign."
