CAUSEWAY United will set their focus back on league duties after two cup wins in three days stretched their unbeaten run to seven games.
Heather St John provide the opposition on Saturday still looking for their first win of the campaign.
But United will travel to Leicestershire in good spirits after seeing off Continental star 2-1 in the FA Vase on Sunday, goals from Jack Pearlman and Johvan Lake-Walker setting up a first round tie at Earlswood on October 19.
Then just 48 hours later the Blues beat another Midland Alliance rival Tividale, who had won all six of their league games to date, 2-1 with Aaron lloyd and Alex Cowley the men on target.
Boss Andy Mole is delighted with his side’s progress and goes to Heather with only one new injury to report, striker Sean Pugh suffering from a sceptic foot which will sideline him for two to three weeks.
“It’s very encouraging — it’s all going well at the moment,” said Mole. “We have a big squad and we may made a few changes on Tuesday and may make a few again, with possibly one or two of our flair players in contention.
“Hopefully, Sean will be back in a couple of weeks once the antibiotics kick in — he has done well for us since he signed, scoring on his debut.
“I’m sure the attitude will be right at Heather. Having a big squad means players are competing for places and want to play for us.
“We are still in two cups and I’m not worried about that affecting our league form, that’s something in football you have to deal with to be successful and I’d rather be in that boat than out of everything by Christmas.”
