BRISTOL City supporting WGC boss Howard Cowley is hoping Watford do not send their first team along to Herns Lane in the Herts Senior Cup tomorrow night (Wednesday) in retaliation.

The Robins beat Aidy Boothroyd's side 2-1 at Vicarage Road in the Championship on Saturday, much to the delight of Cowley.

Looking ahead to the club he manages playing a Watford team in the county cup, Cowley said: "As a Bristol City supporter I'm just hoping they don't put the first team out after we beat them at the weekend."

The game tomorrow kicks off at 7.45pm. Tickets on the door are priced at £5 for adults and £2.50 for concessions.
