TONY Hesketh believes his Lancaster City side can pull off an upset in Saturday’s FA cup tie with FC United of Manchester.

The tie is being billed as the Dolly Blues’ biggest game of their season so far and the manager believes his talented young side can get the win they need.

He said, “We have a chance, mark my words we have a chance. We will prepare for them as normal though I will have some extra information on them.

“We will set ourselves up well and then we go to a good pitch, a good stadium with a chance to acquit ourselves well and get the win.”

Dolly Blue chairman Mick Hoyle is also confident of his team’s chances and has urged fans to travel to Bury to support their club.

He said: “This is our biggest game of the season and we feel we have every chance to win.

“I would love to see Lancaster City supporters follow us on the road to Manchester.”
