BOSS Tom Killick is hardly delighted with the prospect of another game – but Poole’s manager is just happy to still be in the FA Cup.

Killick’s charges had the better of a tight game against higher league opposition in the form of Chippenham Town on Saturday, but despite edging the contest, Poole were unable to secure progression at the first time of asking as the game ended 1-1.

Instead, Dolphins will now have to travel to Wiltshire in a replay tomorrow, with the prospect of extra time and penalties on the horizon.

Speaking to the Daily Echo, Killick said: “With us having a small squad, it is not ideal to have another game of any description, let alone a very tough, Tuesday night cup tie. But, we much rather that than be out of the competition.

“We’re in the draw, and we feel that we can do a little bit better for a bit more sustained periods than we did on Saturday.”

Both sides know that victory will set up a tie with eighth tier Hastings United, with the winners hosting the East Sussex outfit on Saturday, October 2.

Despite the fact that Poole have ceded home advantage, Killick is still confident his side can pull off an upset at Chippenham and progress.

“The fact that game is away from home doesn’t faze us,” continued Killick.

“In an ideal world we would have won the game Saturday and we wouldn’t have a match on Tuesday, so we could prepare for Saturday. However, we will just have to get on with it.”

Dolphins will be without centre-half Will Spetch, who will serve a one game ban after his dismissal last Tuesday against Taunton Town.

The suspension will at least allow Spetch some rest, with the stalwart playing with a stress fracture in his foot in recent weeks.

Joe Wickham featured in Shaftesbury’s defeat away at Bath meaning he is now cup-tied, whilst Luke Holmes is fit to start again after suffering concussion last Tuesday.
