STOURBRIDGE manager Ian Long insists everything is in place for his side to make more memorable FA Cup moments this weekend.

The Glassboys are again on the brink of the first round as they head to Northern Premier League side Whitby Town.

Long has backed his players to turn it on for the "massive" fourth qualifying round clash on Saturday.

He said: "We are going down on Friday night and the club has put everything in place, so there will be no excuses.

"The club is used to doing these things and we have accommodation and a food menu planned so everything is covered.

"It's a massive game for the club and for any team at our level. To get through this 90 minutes and to get the chance to get to the first round is huge, especially with the extra money the FA put into the competition now.

"It's going to be a really tough game for us but it's a winnable one.

"We obviously have to improve after Monday night but I'm sure we will."

Stour will after shake off a disappointing 4-0 defeat against Lye in the Birmingham Senior Cup on Monday.

"Some players have done themselves no favours with the Lye performance," added the boss.

"We made some changes but it was still a strong enough side to have beaten them comfortably.

"In the end it was an embarrassing showing that means the players didn't take their chance to get in the mix for this Saturday's FA Cup game.

"The Birmingham Senior Cup isn't high on our agenda but I don't like losing any games. Maybe it also means we don't need the depth of squad we have now either, so some could have shot themselves in the foot.

"However, if you take that Lye game out of it, we haven't been too bad recently and we are just three points off the top with a game in hand, and that's without really clicking yet and with a few players coming and going. There are plenty of positive for us but now we'll be fully focused on the FA Cup."

Meanwhile, Long is full of praise for the impact of young winger Chay Tilt.

He netted his third goal in three games as the Glassboys drew 1-1 with Banbury last Saturday.

"He's an energetic player with lots of talent and he has come into the team and taken his chance.

"He took his chance in a friendly at Hereford and did well so we threw him in. Since then he hasn't looked back and has three in the last three games."

Will Grocott will have an abdominal injury assessed ahead of the trip to Whitby but James Wren continued his return from injury with 90 minutes against Lye.
