Morpeth Town stage the biggest game in their history in the FA Vase quarter-finals tomorrow.
They have home advantage over Bristol Manor Farm, who knocked out Sunderland RCA with a 3-2 success in the previous round.
“Everybody at Craik Park, from chairman Ken Beattie down, knows the importance of our tie,” said manager Nick Gray, who has David Hiftle and ex-Sunderland reserve-teamer Keith Graydon on the unavailability list.
“We are only three games away from Wembley, so the lads need no encouragement.
“It’s a great incentive since the semis are played over two legs, so you’ve always got a chance.”
Morpeth hope for help from the weather after recent postponements.
