SONNY Bradley is excited for potentially the biggest game of his career very soon – but is not looking past two crucial games for Argyle to come before then.
The Pilgrims travel to Anfield to meet Liverpool in a dream tie in the Emirates FA Cup third round tie on Sunday, January 8.
However, the promotion-chasing Greens, second in Sky Bet League Two on goal difference, face Crawley at Home Park this Saturday, then Barnet at The Hive on Monday, in a pair of important Bank Holiday fixtures.
Bradley also knows, however, that the main focus is on the two league fixtures coming up against Crawley and Barnet first.
“It’s a massive game for me on a personal note and probably the biggest of my career,” said Sonny. “I think that a couple of the other lads will potentially feel the same way.
“I want to be fit and I want to be 100% ready for it, but before that we have Crawley and two days after that Barnet.
“We’ve got to concentrate on Crawley and Barnet. They’re our main focus.
“I don’t think it is right [that the games are so close together]. You need at least 48 hours for your body to recover but there won’t be any moaning about it.
“We’ve just got to get on with it. If the lads put in a shift against Crawley and then are not fit for the Barnet game, we have more than enough in our squad for players to step in, fill places and still be strong.
“So we’ll be looking for six points in these two games and then we’ll go on to Liverpool.
“If you want to play in the Liverpool game, it’s important that you put a shift in against Crawley and Barnet.”
Argyle meet Crawley Town at Home Park at 3pm on Saturday, December 31. Get your tickets online at eticketing.co.uk/pafc, in person at the Ticket Office (there is a separate queue for Crawley tickets) or on the gate on the day of the game.
