FA Cup Draw: Sammy Ameobi Eyes Tie Against Anichebe, Sunderland

 

 

By James Agberebi:

 

 Nigerian forward Sammy Ameobi says he hopes to face fellow Nigerian Victor Anichebe and Sunderland in the third round of the English FA Cup.

 

Ameobi who is on loan to League One side Bolton Wanderers from Newcastle United, was on target in Sunday's 3-2 FA Cup second round home win against Sheffield United.

 

Ameobi scored on 46 minutes to make it 2-0 in favour of Bolton Wanderers.

 

Ahead of Monday's third round draw, Ameobi however stated that he hopes to avoid parent club Newcastle. 

 

“Anyone but Newcastle, please,” he told the boltonnews.co.uk

 

“I’d take Sunderland. They’d be perfect. I’d take that.

 

“I’d like to get a home fixture for the fans. Bolton have done so well in the FA Cup in the past it would be great to go on another run.

 

“Whoever we get won’t fancy playing us. We can keep up this momentum and take it into the third round.”
