Cup more a priority this year.
NEIL YOUNG has urged Chester FC to get back on track by beating
Gateshead in the FA Cup to give themselves a chance of facing "the
big boys". Young's side welcome CHESTER v GATESHEAD TODAY, 3PM
their Conference rivals to the Deva Stadium today for a fourth
qualifying-round tie (3pm). Winners will not only pocket PS12,500 in
prize money but also be in the hat for the first round proper, in which
sides from League One and League Two enter the competition. Young has
hinted that he is ready to make changes to the starting 11 for
today's cup tie. "The FA Cup is always important to us but it
has become more of a priority this season," said Young. "The
financial situation at the club means that the money on offer is really
important and this season we are just one win away from getting a tie
against a Football League club. "We are potentially 90 minutes from
drawing one of the big boys and that is the main thing for me."
