WARRINGTON Town Chairman Toby Macormac is urging the public to get behind the club ahead of tomorrow night’s F.A Trophy replay against national league Ebbsfleet United – to help keep the Wembley dream alive.
The Yellows were just moments away from pulling off a major shock after substitute Ged Kinsella scored seven minutes from time, with the hosts equalising in injury time.
If Warrington can make use of home advantage tomorrow evening, it will see them progress to the last 16 of the competition for only the second time in their history, the last time being in 1993.
Tomorrow night’s replay will be the biggest cup game since the club achieved FA Cup glory when they beat Exeter City in the First Round Proper in front of the live TV cameras at a packed Cantilever Park.
Macormac sees a big crowd as the “extra man” and is urging the public to turn out and show their support like they did in the F.A Cup.
He said:”As long as we are in the competition we have a chance of winning it but I think the further we go the more important the draw is.
“At press, for the last 16 slots available nine of them are London based teams which could mean another overnighter and for part-time players and the club that’s a big ask, coupled with going against full-time professional clubs.
“We are in the draw and hopefully if we can do the job on Tuesday a home tie will await us and we’ll keep our fingers crossed for some better weather so our backlog of fixtures can start being played, with Tuesday being our ninth fixture in the Trophy!”
On the injury front it’s going to be last minute for Sean Williams and Tony McMillan both with calf muscle injuries, to add to Jack Higgins who misses through suspension.
Macormac added: “We had a great support on Saturday that travelled all the way to Kent and if we can “fill the fortress” tomorrow who knows it might just be the start of a Wembley day out!”
The game kicks off at 7.45pm and is pay on the gate.
*The winners will face an away trip to Wealdstone FC from the Southern Premier.
