Bradford will appeal against the Football Association's decision to boot them out of the FA Cup for fielding an ineligible player in their second round tie against Brentford last Friday.

The Bantams did not receive written permission for Curtis Good, on loan from Newcastle, to play in the competition by the 12pm deadline on the day of the fixture, which ended 1-1 at Valley Parade. The FA announced they had expelled City from the competition earlier on Friday and gave them until 5pm to launch an appeal.

Bradford confirmed in a statement: "Bradford City Football Club can confirm that they will be appealing the FA's decision to expel the club from this season's FA Cup competition. This process will take place throughout the forthcoming week. The club will report any further information to its supporters when applicable."
