"Bring them on" is the cry from every Bradford City fan at the prospect of more Premier League challenges in the FA Cup.
After watching their team dispatch Sunderland at Valley Parade, the Bantams faithful are just one game away from a trip to Wembley and are relishing the prospect of more big name scalps:
Bradford City's Billy Clarke says he sensed a nervousness in Sunderland ahead of today's FA Cup Fourth Round tie.
The Irishman's shot deflected off compatriot John O'Shea and into the Sunderland man's net to open the scoring, and Clarke says he thought the Teesiders were nervous taking to the Valley Parade pitch.
"A little bit, yes. They weren't as on the ball as I thought they would be and I was getting in acres of space in the first half, well both halves really. We exploited what we set out to do and our game plan worked a treat."
Bradford City man Billy Knott has praised his team's fans after their win over Sunderland.
"The fans were great today, they were like the twelfth man out there."
He praised the manager and thanked Sunderland fans who clapped him at the end.
Asked about playing at Wembley Knott replied:
"It's every boy's dream. So the next game is like a final, really. The team will be celebrating tonight, but focussed for the game on Wednesday."
Gary Lineker claims the BBC would have screened Bradford's FA Cup fifth-round clash if their opponents had been known when the TV picks were made, before the fourth-round replays.
The BBC was criticised for overlooking the League One club after their giant-killing of Chelsea. Of the eight fifth-round ties played this weekend, Bradford's was one of three not shown live by either the BBC or BT Sport.
The Bantams made the broadcasters regret their decision by beating Sunderland 2-0 to reach the quarter-finals for the first time since 1976.
Sunderland had needed a replay to get past Fulham in the fourth round and Lineker claimed on Twitter that that was a key factor in the BBC picking Aston Villa's clash with Leicester and Man Utd's trip to Preston on Monday night instead.
The BBC can only show 2 ties in each round and select them pre replays. If they could've waited Bradford would obviously have been chosen.
Bradford City boss Phil Parkinson has praised his team's cup exploits after they beat Premiership opposition Sunderland 2-0 at Valley Parade.
Parkinson said his players' commitment and pride in the shirt was key to their success.
"We can't win every game but every time we play we give it everything we've got and the supporters and the people of Bradford have responded to that." "Nobody expected us to beat Chelsea but we did that, and today was a bonus. Now the excitement intensifies because we're one game away from Wembley."
"I'd like a home draw, because the way the atmosphere was today I would love to sample that again for the players and the people of Bradford. But, at this stage, any draw is a good draw really."
The Bantams will find out tomorrow who they play in the next round and Parkinson said he would prefer a home tie.
"If we're given a chance we can beat anyone and I think we've proved that. All I can say to our supporters is that whoever we draw we'll give it everything we've got. We'll play in the way we do, in a positive fashion and look to attack at every opportunity."
Sunderland boss Gus Poyet has congratulated Bradford City for their FA Cup win over his Black Cats side.
He said his team tried their best and that it was a great cup tie. The former Spurs midfielder said he has no regrets.
"This is why the cup is the best competition in the world. I know what it means to Bradford fans."
