Bradford City manager Phil Parkinson hopes his side's victory over Chelsea will be rewarded with a trip to Old Trafford.

Manchester United still need to get the better of Cambridge United in a a replay following a 0-0 draw on Friday in order to join the Bantams in the hat.

If I had my choice, I'd like to play Manchester United.

The experience we had yesterday going to Old Trafford was just terrific. If Manchester United can manage to beat Cambridge it would be great to go to Old Trafford.

But whoever we get, it's great to be in the fifth round. We're enjoying being in the limelight.
