Grant wants change of cup luck
JOEL Grant is looking for a change of cup fortune as he faces his former club Crewe tomorrow.
The winger, who joined Wanderers from the Railwaymen in summer 2011, says he's been on the wrong end of a cup upset too many times and wants to turn that on its head.
And there's no better place to set that right than on his old stomping ground in the first round of the FA Cup.
Grant said: "Unfortunately the last few years we've gone out to the underdog. On Saturday it might be a bit different because they are in a league higher than us, so we might be the underdog.
"The way the season's started, it sometimes works out you go on good cup runs. We're still in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy and we would like to stay in this trophy as well."
He added: "Some might say I have a point to prove, some might feel I did quite well. For myself I wouldn't say I've got a point to prove. In a way it's going back there and showing how much I've improved from when I was there."
Grant then faces another of his former clubs, Aldershot Town, in a vital League Two six pointer on Tuesday night.
Defeat would plunge Wanderers into the relegation zone, and although manager Gareth Ainsworth said it's a big game it won't be the be-all and end-all.
He said: "It looks like a big game and we'll take it as a big game but I don't want people getting carried away saying this is the key to the season. It's just a game. We'll be giving it our all to win that one."
