Wrexham's Scouse striker Paul Mullin: Give us Liverpool in FA Cup Third Round

Wrexham's Scouse striker Paul Mullin hopes they can draw Liverpool or Everton in the Third Round of the FA Cup.

Mullin is currently one of the most prolific strikers outside of the Football League. The Wrexham goal-getter has found the net 19 times this season in just 22 appearances.

That included a hat-trick for the Dragons against Farnborough in the last round of the FA Cup, with a 4-1 home win securing a safe passage into the third round, where a the prospect of Premier League opposition awaits. And Liverpool-born Mullin, who spent two seasons at Tranmere, has got his heart set in a rendezvous with one of the giants of Merseyside football when the draw takes place at Anfield on Monday (November 28).

Speaking to BBC Sport, when asked who he would like to face in the next round, Mullin said: "Liverpool at Anfield or Everton here [at home]. I'd like to play either of those teams but hopefully Liverpool.

"It's been my dream as a kid to walk out at Anfield in a competitive match and hopefully I get to do it. But we'll take whoever we get and try and do our best in the game. If it is a big tie then we can go an enjoy it and if not, we've got to try and win that."
