DURHAM City joint manager Lee Collings is hoping his side play as they did in the last round against Frickley Athletic, when they line-up with Bradford Park Avenue in the Quarter Final of the Evo Stik League Challenge Cup at the Esh Group Stadium tonight.
He said: “If we repeat that performance we’ll be in with a chance but we will have to play a lot better than we did in the second half against Chester on Saturday.
“It’s a chance to get that game out of our systems. Bradford are mid-table in the Premier Division so we will have to be up for the task.”
Collings and his managerial colleague, Dickie Ord have whittled the squad down to 18 players and the pair could go into the game with no selection concerns.
Josh Home Jackson, Gareth Ayers and Elliott Cutts are doubtful but Collings is hopeful that the trio will pass fitness tests.
