Bradford on for treble after FA Cup reprieve

An incredible cup treble is still on for Bradford, victory against Arsenal in the Capital One Cup during the week put them into the semi finals and now they're back in the FA Cup!

A failure to get written permission from the FA for on loan Curtis Good to feature led to them being expelled from the FA Cup and Brentford awarded a place in round three, however an appeal went in.

This appeal proved successful, with a Bradford statement reading: 'Bradford City FC can confirm that today director of operations David Baldwin attended an appeal hearing with Ben Jones, Partner at Petherbridge Bassra solicitors and Mr Simon Csoka QC of Carmelite Chambers.

'The appeal was heard before the FA Appeal committee at Wembley Stadium in relation to the matter of the club's expulsion from this season's FA Cup with Budweiser competition.

'We can confirm that on appeal the club has now been reinstated back into the FA Cup competition and has been fined for its actions.

'We deeply regret our breach of the rules and are currently reviewing our procedures to ensure no repeat of this situation.

'Therefore the original replay of the club's FA Cup second-round tie at Brentford FC, scheduled for Tuesday, December 18 2012, will now take place at the Bees' Griffin Park stadium.'

Successfully appealing an FA decision to expel a club from the FA Cup is something that Bury and Droylsden have previously failed to manage, however Bradford have but they've been handed a 1,000.

The winner of the replay against Brentford will face Southend in round three.
