The mid-season fixture brings a moments respite from the league campaign, though Head Coach Tom Shaw will have one eye on Saturday's league fixture away at title chasing Buxton FC. He is determined that he and his chargers can land a place in the final - and as such, have a chance of winning more silverware, silverware that can be added to the John Reames trophy, won in pre-season.
"On the back of a terrific victory on Saturday, we will be taking this game very seriously in a bid to get to a cup final. Due to a good number of our squad playing for other teams in the first round and quarter finals, we will look very different this evening." With up to seven substitutes, the boss continued, "It is an opportunity for some of the Under 21s, trialists who have trained with us this season, and players already in the squad to show what they are capable of, in a very tough fixture."
Our visitors are expected to bring a full first team squad, with their relatively new management team of Paul Cox and John Ramshaw overseeing things for the Pilgrims. Should the score be level after 90 minutes, it's straight to penalties to decide who progresses.
