Newcastle United defender Curtis Good is looking forward to facing Arsenal in the Capital One Cup.

Aussie Good is on-loan at Arsenal's opponents Bradford City.

"It would be a dream come true because all my mates back home are Arsenal supporters," he said. "When I said I was coming to Bradford they knew we were playing Arsenal and were excited.

"Even if I'm only on the bench, just to be involved in the game at a packed stadium would be great."

Good believes it is this calibre of fixture, and the drama generated from cup competitions, that is convincing more players to come over and have trials with English clubs.

"Will more Aussies come over here? Definitely," he added. "The A League is good but you want to play at the highest level possible.

"When you're younger and more ambitious you want to come over here."
