Sunderland would be a dream - Whild
4:33pm Sunday 5th January 2014 in Harriers
THE chance of playing Premier League Sunderland at the Stadium Light would be a dream, says Harriers assistant boss Gary Whild.
The Aggborough outfit could take on the Black Cats in the FA Cup Fourth Round if they beat Peterborough United at London Road on January 14 in their replay.
Seeimg off the League One side at home would in itself a huge giant-killing for Skrill Premier Kidderminster.
Sunderland progressed into the next round of the cup with a hard fought 3-1 win over Carlisle United.
"We knew whoever won out of Sunderland or Carlisle we would face a long trip to the North East," said Whild.
"Once you reach the Third Round you want to face a Premier League club and it would be a dream to play them.
"Sunderland is a big carrot for both ourselves and Peterborough."
Harriers face a tough task but they will be encouraged by Saturday's 0-0 draw in the third round at Aggborough, where the Carpetmen had the game's best chances to win the match.
The Posh will be favourites to progress into the next stage of the competition and pocket the £67,000 prize money but the prospect of facing Sunderland will be a big motivating factor.
Whild added: "We've got a very tough game at Peterborough before we think about who we face in the fourth round.
"I thought we had the chances to win the game at Aggborough.
"We looked very solid and it was a very good response after the Luton game."
