Cup brings Chelsea skipper Terry together with Man City’s Bridge
The love rivals were handed a possible FA Cup quarter-final meeting in yesterday's draw.
A City source told The Sun: "Wayne has acted with dignity and kept his head down through all this but after all that has gone on, he doesn't need anyone to tell him what this FA Cup game would mean.
"Everyone is motivated at City these days but if they needed any extra motivation to beat Stoke to get back to Stamford Bridge, this will be it."
Terry and Bridge have not spoken since news broke of JT's alleged affair with Bridge's ex-girlfriend Vanessa Perroncel.
If City beat Stoke in next week's fifth-round replay they will travel to holders Chelsea in the first weekend of March.
