The Football League Paper - - FA CUP - By Matt Bad­cock

PAUL COX is look­ing for­ward to meet­ing up with old friends and shar­ing a glass of wine at Mans­field Town this af­ter­noon – but it’s Guise­ley he hopes will be down­ing the bubbly!

The Lions’ boss re­turns to the club he guided to the Con­fer­ence ti­tle in 2013 for the first time since he re­signed in Novem­ber 2014.

His cap­tain for the tri­umphant cam­paign was mid­fielder Adam Mur­ray, who re­placed Cox as Mans­field man­ager and is now at Guise­ley as his as­sis­tant.

Cox is now fo­cus­ing on de­vel­op­ing the his­tory his Guise­ley have al­ready cre­ated in reach­ing the sec­ond round proper for the first time ever af­ter beat­ing Ac­cring­ton Stanley.

“I’ve al­ready spo­ken to the peo­ple at Mans­field and, win, lose or draw, I’ll pop in for a glass of wine or a beer and say hello,” said Cox. “But take away the ro­mance. We’ve al­ready made his­tory for Guise­ley and we want to go even fur­ther now.

“We’ve got to be hun­gry to go to the next stage.”
