Andy dreaming for dream return

Last updated : 13 November 2009 By Bigrich.....

The 26 year old defender spent time at Anfield as schoolboy and Andy tells the 'Tiser that he'd love to return thier with the Millers in the third round.

"If we could get through, I would like an away tie against any of the big clubs—Manchester United or Liverpool—but especially Liverpool. My family support Everton but I supported Liverpool when I was younger because I was there for so many years as a schoolboy. I've played there in reserves and youth games but an FA Cup tie at Anfield would be fantastic." he said.

"I've been involved in big cup ties before—Leeds were still in the Premier League when they played us (Swindon) the first time—but I've never really had a run or a big draw in the FA Cup."

Nicholas looked back at the first-round win at Wealdstone; "They were bang up for it, They had won something like five games to get to this stage and they were at home. We had to deal with pressure. It wasn't great and it wasn't nice football but we got the job done."

"It doesn't matter whether you win 5-0 or 3-2, we're through, even though their two goals were great ones and one of ours was scruffy."

Nicholas was subbed midway through the second half for Stephen Brogan, and with Brogan, Jamie Green and Nicholas all vying for the left back spot, Andy tells the 'Tiser will just get on with things; "At 26, I've been around and I've been used to being in and out of teams at various clubs. I've been on the bench and I've been in the stand sometimes. You get to a certain age and you learn to deal with it and it doesn't knock your confidence if you're not playing. You just have to stay fit and get ready for the chance when it comes."

"I must say though that it's great to be involved. Hopefully we can keep winning and I can stay in the side." he added.
