JOE Paxman is eager to cause an FA Cup upset by helping Basildon United overcome brother Jack and Billericay Town.

National League South outfit Billericay are set to welcome the Bees to the Steel Team Stadium for an FA Cup second qualifying round tie tomorrow.

The local derby is expected to see the Paxman brothers go head-to-head and Basildon’s Joe is hoping to claim the family bragging rights over Jack.

“My mum and her partner, along with my niece and nephew, are likely to be there to cheer us on,” said Joe, who grabbed the winner as the Bees beat Isthmian North rivals Coggeshall Town in the first qualifying round of the competition.

“We have only played against each other once and that was a few years ago when I was at East Thurrock United and Jack was with Maidstone United.

“Maidstone won on that day and so it would be nice if I was able to celebrate at the end this time.

“It would be special if we both started and went up against each other.

“We both want to get through and it’s a big day for the family.”

It has been a chaotic week at Billericay, with manager Harry Wheeler’s departure being announced and owner Glenn Tamplin stepping down.

And, while John Sussex’s Bees will be the underdogs going into the FA Cup tie, Joe feels the Isthmian North side are heading to Billericay at the best possible time.

“With everything that has gone on there this week, it is the best time to be playing them,” added the 22-year-old.

“We’re going there looking to cause an upset and we’re not in the competition just to make up the numbers.

“I think we were the underdogs going into the last round against Coggeshall but we came through that one with the win.

“There is nothing wrong with being the underdogs and there is no pressure on us at all, while it is all a bit up in the air for them at the moment.

“We don’t really know what team they will be able to put out but, regardless of that, we will go there and give a good account of ourselves.”

Joe also revealed that he predicted he would face 25-year-old brother Jack before the second qualifying round draw was made.

“Jack and I were sitting next to each other when the draw was being made,” admitted Joe.

“But, before the draw got underway, I already said that we would be facing Billericay.

“My team-mate Tom Anderson was reading out the draw as it was happening and it was great when it was confirmed that we were going to Billericay.

“There has been some banter between us since then and a few of our mates have been involved in the banter in group chats this week.”

Basildon will be without Ernest Okoh for the trip to Billericay due to his sending off in the 3-0 defeat at Maldon & Tiptree last weekend.

But Adam Vyse and Ayo Odukoya are available despite their dismissals in the midweek draw with Great Wakering Rovers.
