January 19, 2012 Ex-AFC Forward On Vase Progress
Top scorer Chris Bacon (ex-AFC Sudbury) believes Ridgeons League Premier Division club Wisbech Town can overcome STL Northern League side Dunston in Saturday’s FA Vase fourth-round tie at the Elgood’s Fenland Stadium.
Bacon played in last season’s Vase semi-finals when local rivals King’s Lynn lost out to Coalville and would love nothing better than to go one stage further with the Fenmen to Wembley this time around.
He said: “It was a big disappointment losing to Coalville over the two legs. We were expecting to win, but Coalville were a very good side.
“It is very much how you perform on the day. We have lot of quality in our squad and if we are at our best on Saturday I think we can beat any team at this level.
“Hopefully we can get a big crowd because that can act as a 12th man too. It certainly helped when we were at Witham in the last round and the Wisbech fans really got behind the team.”
Dunston were quarter-finalists last season, losing out to Whitley Bay, and arrive at Wisbech on Saturday as one of the bookies favourites to win the competition while Wisbech are rated as 25-1 chances.
But Bacon is quick to point out: “Just like the FA Cup, the Vase throws up some surprise results too and everyone is looking forward to the game.
“We are four wins away from Wembley and with a little bit of luck in the draw who knows how far we can go.”
