Oldham manager Paul Dickov is hoping for a big pay day and a reunion after watching his side cause one of the big upsets of the FA Cup third round.

The League One side dumped Nottingham Forest, from the Championship, out of the competition to leave Dickov's fellow Scot Alex McLeish still looking for his first win since taking charge at The City Ground. Now Dickov wants Oldham to be drawn against Premier League champions Manchester City, his old club.

Dickov said: "With my Manchester City connections it would be nice to meet them in the next round. Financially it would mean a lot to the club and it would be great for me on a personal level. If we can make some money in the next round, you never know - the chairman might let me bring one or two players in as well."
