Godmanchester Rovers enter the FA Vase in upbeat mood tomorrow - despite facing the toughest of tasks.

Adie Cambridge’s men, struggling in third-bottom in the Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division, take on Spartan South Midlands League Premier Division leaders London Colney at the David Wilson Homes Ground, 3pm.

And while Cambridge is quick to acknowledge his team will kick-off as big underdogs, he also predicts there will be shock results at this stage of the national competition and hopes his team can be responsible for one.

He said: “There will almost certainly be a shock somewhere in the Vase tomorrow and hopefully we can be the team who provide it.

“There is no doubt we are huge underdogs as we sit third-bottom of our league and London Colney have stormed clear at the top of theirs.

“But our performances in our past three league games have been really encouraging and hopefully we can take that confidence into this tie.”

Rovers have picked up five points from those three recent Premier Division outings, but they were beaten in midweek when Eynesbury triumphed 2-0 at the David Wilson Homes Ground in the opening round of the Hinchingbrooke Cup.
