Lincoln City boss Danny Cowley is determined to bring down yet another premier league giant in a cup competition.Lincoln knocked out Burnley in the FA Cup round of 16 and the manager plots to do the same against Arsenal in their quarter final tie on Saturday at the Emirates.
Cowley would send his players a text message reminding them to sleep well and to be ready.The boss would remind his men every night before every game.
“You would receive a text message on the Friday night, and it would immediately motivate you,” his former Concord captain, Steve King, tells Bleacher Report.
Arsenal will lock horns with Lincoln City on Saturday in the FA Cup quarter final battle. Lincoln plays in the fifth tier of English football. Meanwhile,the gunners will be looking to make amends following a string of poor results against Liverpool and Bayern Munich recently.
On Saturday, Cowley will lead Lincoln City out at the 60,000-capacity Emirates Stadium to face Arsenal in the FA Cup quarter-finals. Unsurprisingly, it’s the deepest FA Cup run in the club’s 133-year history.
It appears an uphill task for Lincoln to overcome another premier league side after knocking out Burley.The win against Burley saw the side reach the last eight of FA Cup in 103 years.
They come up against an Arsenal team at the lowest of ebbs, having been demolished 5-1 by Bayern Munich on Tuesday and with speculation mounting over the future of long-serving manager Arsene Wenger.
However, Arsenal are one of England’s most successful clubs, having won 13 league titles and a joint-record 12 FA Cups, while on the other side Lincoln have never come close to winning any of the titles.
It will be an entertaining match as the Gunners have FA Cup as the only trophy to win possibly.The premier League title looks to be slipping away while the hopes of advancing to Champions League quarters were shuttered by Bayern Munich.Lincoln will be trying to shock the world of football by knocking out another premier league giant in a cup competition.
