Trundle excited by Man City test

Bristol City striker Lee Trundle is excited about their Carling Cup draw with Sven Goran Eriksson's high-flying Manchester City.

Trundle told Sky Sports News: "Sven will get a warm reception from us.

"Against a manager like that and some of the players at Manchester City is dead exciting. Funny things can happen - we'll go out as the underdogs and we'll go out to enjoy it and you never know what will happen."

The 30-year-old admitted he was looking forward to measuring himself against top players, saying: "It's good to test yourself against Premier League sides. It's one of those where you'd like to be away from home to soak up the atmosphere. But being at home gives us a chance.

"You've got to take your chance. The league is what we're concentrating on so it's a good distraction for us."
