Arsenal win doesn't outgun Wembley

Arsenal win doesn't outgun Wembley

Former York City defender James Meredith says being part of the Bradford City side which defeated Arsenal in the Capital One Cup in midweek still doesn't compare with his glorious Wembley double with the Minstermen last season.

"Doing that was a really big and fantastic achievement because of the effect it had on the whole city" - James Meredith
The Bantams are currently preparing for a dream two-legged semi-final in the competition after dramatically beating the Gunners on penalties following a 1-1 draw between the sides at a packed Valley Parade.

However, Meredith, 24, believes that as outstanding as the achievement was, it doesn't match his Wembley heroics with York at the end of last season.

"It's not up there with the two Wembley wins," he told The Press. "Doing that was a really big and fantastic achievement because of the effect it had on the whole city and it was the culmination of a whole season's work.

"This run has only come over a few games and, although winning against Arsenal is still a good achievement, I think they put themselves under a lot of pressure by playing their strongest team."
