KARL Marginson is urging FC United to focus fully on continuing their best run in a knockout competition when they visit Silsden in the North West Counties League Challenge Cup quarter-finals.
Although winning the league remains his priority, the boss is also desperate to deliver some cup silverware and regards the trip to Keighley RL club's Cougar Park as crucial.
"We've not exactly covered ourselves in glory in the cups these past 18 months, so the Silsden tie is vital to us," he said.
"The lads warmed up in fine style by beating UniBond League Warrington 5-1 in a friendly on Tuesday and we'll be looking to take that form into tomorrow's game."
Also in quarter-final action will be Oldham Town and Flixton, who meet in a re-run of Wednesday's Manchester Premier Cup semi-final, which the latter won 3-2 to set up a date with Droylsden.
Meanwhile, the day's top first division clashes see fifth-placed Maine Road travelling to Glossop, who are ninth, and Trafford seeking to replace Ramsbottom United in the top six when they visit them at the Riverside Ground.
