DEFENDER Nathan Clarke reckons the Town squad are "buzzing" in anticipation of this teatime's Carling Cup draw.
Town, of course, marched into the third round thanks to a stunning 4-2 win at First Division Sunderland and they are now in the hat with all the big guns from the Premiership (5.30).
It's an intriguing prospect and Clarke - who was back in the squad at the Stadium of Light - says excitement at the McAlpine is high.
"There have been a few shouts from people wanting Manchester United, but the lads are buzzing at the moment and are willing to take on anyone," said Clarke, who is well on the way back from his summer knee surgery.
"The win up at Sunderland - which was brilliant to watch - proved to a lot of people what we are capable of, and it would be great now if we were rewarded with one of the really big clubs in the third round, hopefully at the McAlpine."
Clarke hasn't played a senior game all season but his fitness is improving under physio Lee Martin.
"It has been disappointing to be left out, but it helped to travel with the lads to Sunderland because I had been feeling a bit down and, having played in the Reserves in midweek, I'm now looking to kick on and push myself forward," he said.
Town Juniors have been drawn at home to Grimsby in the first round of the FA Youth Cup. A date for the tie has still be be arranged.
* Manager Peter Jackson includes a number of players with Town connections in his side to play a Wakefield Prison Warders Xl in a charity match at Liversedge tomorrow (2pm).
Proceeds are for the West Yorkshire Forget Me Not Trust, of which Jackson is patron.
