Notts have noth­ing to lose in Cup

Nottingham Post - - SPORT -

HARRY Kewell ac­cepts Notts County face a tall or­der to se­cure FA Cup glory at Barns­ley but says his side hav­ing noth­ing to fear.

The Mag­pies make the trip to Oak­well for the first round clash to­day with the book­ies mak­ing the Tykes favourites to go through.

With Barns­ley fourth in League One, Notts will have to pro­duce one of their best per­for­mances of the sea­son if they are to se­cure an up­set. But boss Kewell says that while the odds are against his side, he thinks they have the abil­ity to cause Barns­ley prob­lems.

“The FA Cup has so much his­tory and if you get a chance to play in it then you have to grab it with both hands,” he said. “We know it will be a tough game but if you’re go­ing to en­ter a com­pe­ti­tion you might as well face one of the best teams and Barns­ley are fir­ing on all cylin­ders.

“They are ex­pected to win the game so we have noth­ing to lose and the pres­sure is off us.’’
