STUART McCall refuses to be downhearted with City's underwhelming FA Cup third round draw.

The Bantams missed out on a money-spinning clash with one of the Premier League big boys and instead face a trip to League Two opposition – either Port Vale or Yeovil.

Yet McCall, preparing for his first third-round appearance at the Valley Parade helm, was fairly upbeat with the prospect of taking on another team from a lower division.

He said: "It's all right. Put it one way, there were some draws coming out and you were thinking 'oh no, I don't want that'.

"If you asked the chairman, the players or the manager, they probably all want different things. Would they prefer to go to Old Trafford? Probably so.

"For me, I'm looking to go as far as we can. Obviously Bradford got that great result at Chelsea a few years ago but as a manager setting your side up to win, this is a better opportunity to progress than if we'd gone to somewhere like Arsenal."

City must wait until next Tuesday to discover who they will play on Saturday, January 6.

Yeovil, whose side include former City loan striker Francois Zoko, host the replay after forcing a 1-1 draw at Vale Park with a late equaliser.

McCall said: "I'm not saying it's going to be an easy tie, whoever we get. Every game brings its own challenges.

"You've seen there have been a few awkward draws for the likes of Fleetwood and Peterborough in this round.

"But when you're drawn against a side below you, especially with our away form at the minute, it gives you an opportunity to get through.

"Reaching round three, I saw it as a chance of going a step further and you'd like to think this gives us that.

"It's not too bad a tie. I certainly wouldn't have fancied some of the ones that came up before that.

"I've got a good record at Port Vale. I've got no record at Yeovil because I've never been there!"

City won 2-1 at Vale last season with goals from Romain Vincelot and Alex Jones. Yeovil beat them 1-0 on their last trip to the west country in January 2015, the week before Phil Parkinson's men stunned Chelsea.
