Striker looking forward to Cherries clash

Marc McNulty was delighted to give the fans plenty of cup cheer by beating Ipswich.

But he knows that the squad will be just as excited about the chance to face Bournemouth at Fratton Park later this month.

Gary Roberts had opened the scoring from the penalty spot in their third round replay over Ipswich.

And McNulty then doubled the advantage by heading home a fine Gareth Evans cross to help secure a 2-1 victory.

Now he is looking forward to testing himself against Premier League opposition in the shape of Eddie Howe’s Cherries.

The on-loan striker striker said: “It was always going to be a tough tie against Ipswich, but we were disappointed not get the job done at their place.

“But we turned up in the replay, did what we do best and got the win to get through to the next round.

“I didn’t think Gaz was going to put the ball in with his left foot, but credit to him because it was an unbelievable cross and I didn’t have too much to do.

“I’m sure it’ll be a sell-out against Bournemouth and it’s a game that everyone can get excited about – the fans and the players.

“That’s the great thing about the FA Cup – you get the chance to test yourselves against top sides.

“So we’re all looking forward to the chance to test ourselves against a Premier League outfit.

“The supporters deserve it because they’re brilliant and turn out to back us in large numbers every week, so it gave us a bit extra out there on the pitch.”
