DANNY Scopes has called on his Concord Rangers players to target silverware in the Essex Senior Cup.

The Beach Boys have won the competition three times in the last five years and they will welcome Great Wakering Rovers to the Aspect Arena for a fourth round tie tonight.

Although Wakering are two divisions below Concord in the Isthmian North, Scopes warns his players cannot afford to underestimate Steve Butterworth’s side.

“It’s a competition we want to do well in,” said the Beach Boys’ boss.

“I know they lost at the weekend, but Wakering are in a good moment because they have made a great start to the season.

“I know Steve pretty well and he has put together a good squad of players.

“They have a young side and it won’t be an easy game for us so we will go as full-strength as we possibly can.

“It’s a competition we have got history in.

“We go into the Essex Senior Cup each season thinking we stand a good chance of getting to a final and picking up some silverware.

“Because of that, we will be treating the game like any other and we are looking to win.”

Concord booked their place in the fourth round of the competition by getting the better of holders East Thurrock United last month.

Decarrey Sheriff grabbed what proved to be the only goal of the contest and, due to their National League South status, the Beach Boys will be among the favourites to clinch the county title.

However, Concord - who could hand Ryan Gondoh a second appearance for the club after recovering from an injury setback - will need to overcome a Wakering outfit surprising many this term.

In just their second campaign back in the fourth tier of non-league football and with Butterworth enjoying his first full season in management, Wakering are flying high in the Isthmian North.

But Butterworth admits his outfit will be the underdogs tonight.

“I don’t think we could have asked for a tougher draw because they try to win the competition every season,” said Butterworth.

“They are two divisions above us, so no-one will be expecting anything other than a home win.

“We will make a couple of changes to the team that faced Heybridge Swifts at the weekend.

“I think we have nothing to lose and, although they will be favourites to progress, Concord are not unbeatable because a lot of their players were in the Isthmian North with us last season.”
