BOWERS & Pitsea will be looking to extend their record-breaking FA Cup run when they make the short trip to Canvey Island tomorrow.

The Isthmian Premier League outfit, who are enjoying their best ever run in the competition, have reached the third qualifying round for the first time in the club’s history.

And, having suffered a 3-1 defeat to Cray Wanderers in midweek, Bowers boss Rob Small is eager to bounce back at the first time of asking when they visit Park Lane for an exciting local derby.

“I would much rather be going to Canvey with a couple of wins under our belt,” said Small.

“But I guess our recent results keeps us honest and grounded.

“We won’t go there thinking we deserve to win just because of the league we are in.

“It’s a tie which could go either way and hopefully we will do enough to get a result.

“With it being an FA Cup, the result is all that matters as no-one remembers how you went through.

“The performance is irrelevant and just the result counts for anything.”
