JOINT Blues boss Micky Chapman admitted to being “pleased” with a home draw in the last 32 of the FA Vase.

The Lowestoft Town manager, who was delighted with his side's 2-1 win over Harefield United 2-1 at the weekend, also revealed that expectations were high following last season's Wembley trip for the Vase final.

The Ridgeons League leaders and last season's FA Vase runners-up will host Witney United at Crown Meadow for a place in the last 16 on Saturday, January 17.

Witney currently lie third in the Hellenic Premier Division and after beating Buckingham Town 2-1 at the weekend, Chapman added his side will be in for another “tough” encounter.

“We're pleased it's a home tie for us,” he said. We know at this stage there are no easy games and it's going to be a tough game for us.

“We're glad we came out of the hat first. All we wanted was a home tie against a side from another league, so we'll have them watched.

“There are a lot of expectations from the fans and within the dressing room as well, but we are under no illusions and we've got to take one game at a time.”

But with the winning club pocketing £1,500 in prize money, The Blues will be aiming to keep their fantastic Vase run going next month.
