THE underdogs will be looking to bite back once more tomorrow as Lowestoft Town aim to continue their unbeaten start to the new campaign by overcoming the odds and beating a side that play two levels higher than them in the FA Cup.

Micky Chapman and Ady Gallagher's men will be looking to make it a top ten games undefeated when they travel to British Gas Southern League Premier Division side Cambridge City for the first qualifying round tie.

There will be an added incentive for The Blues as they aim to shine on the Milton Road surface tomorrow, as they will become screen stars once more - with goals from the game being shown on ITV local, and key moments available on the FA cup channel at www.itvlocal.com/facup

And hopefully this will be a lucky omen for Lowestoft, following a successful showing in the opening round tie against St Ives.

Looking forward to tomorrow's encounter - which will see a return to The Lilywhites for diminutive midfielder Jamie Godbold - joint Blues boss Micky Chapman said: “We are the underdogs but this is the FA Cup. “Everyone wants a cup run, as it's the biggest competition in the world, and we want to stay in it for as long as possible.

“We will give it our best, and we'll be doing everything in our power to stay in the cup.”

Going into the game with seven wins and two draws under their belts, Chapman is calling on the Trawler Boys to cheer them on once more, as they are a crucial part of The Blues armoury.

“Hopefully we will be taking a lot of supporters with us as they can make a real difference,” he said. “They are a quality outfit, and the report we've had after having them watched is fantastic.

“But we are focused on continuing our unbeaten run and showing we can compete against sides who play at a higher level,” Chapman warned.

If the game is drawn tomorrow the replay will be at the Crown Meadow on Tuesday evening.

Over the bascule bridge, Kirkley and Pakefield will also be on their travels tomorrow as they face newcomers Whitton Utd, who are currently bottom of the table.

Buoyed by a fine 3-1 away win last week, which has seen K&P move up the Ridgeons League table to seventh place, Nick Shorten's men will be aiming for more success on the road.

They will however be without young midfielder Bodie Carter for most of the season after he sadly broke his leg in last week's win.
