LOWESTOFT Town's reward for reaching the quarter finals of the FA Vase is their first away journey of the campaign - with a visit to Essex-based Concord Rangers.

Aiming to fly against the Essex Senior League side, Micky Chapman and Ady Gallagher's men are likely to come up against a free-scoring side.

Concord currently sit in fourth place in the premier division, and boast a record of played 17, won 12, drawn one, lost four this season. They have scored 58 league goals and conceded just 18.

They booked their place in the last eight of the competition by virtue of a 2-0 win over Camberley Town in the last 16 tie on Saturday.

Rangers are managed by player-boss Danny Scopes, and feature former Southend and Leyton Orient defender John Heffer and a potent strikeforce of Michael Begg - who has scored 33 goals in 39 games this season - and former Tottenham youth starlet Danny Hearle who has scored 36 goals in 42 appearances.

The Blues however, buoyed by their fine cup form and a first-ever appearance in the quarter finals of the Vase, will be aiming to continue their excellent record this season.

And with chairman Geoff Price believing this is the year they can make Wembley, The Blues will be aiming for more joy in the next round on March 1.
