Leeds United manager David Hockaday admits he is looking forward to his side's League Cup second round tie against Bradford City.

The Whites came through a first round clash against Accrington Stanley and as a result have been handed a trip to Bradford as they bid to make progress in the competition.

It is a tie which excites Hockaday, who has talked up the local derby aspect to it.

"It's a great tie for the area. Everyone's licking their lips in anticipation and you can't get more of a local derby than Leeds-Bradford", the Leeds boss told LUTV.


"Both teams are going to be excited about that, it's one that we're both going to be looking forward to. Let's hope it goes well for us on the night."


Despite Bradford plying their trade in League One, Hockaday is taking nothing for granted and believes the club have a good set-up.

"They've got a good manager, they've got a good team, a great stadium, they get great support", he explained.

"So we're all looking forward to a great evening."

Bradford, who reached the final of the League Cup in 2013, booked their spot in the next round of the competition by beating Morecambe 1-0 on Tuesday evening.
