MATT GLENNON feels FC Halifax Town must be ready to meet fire with fire in tonight’s FA Cup replay against Chester at The Shay.
The two fought out a dramatic and ferocious 1-1 draw at the Exacta Stadium in the third qualifying round and meet again for the prize of visiting Lincoln City and a shot at the first round proper.
Keeper Glennon believes tonight will be another feisty clash – Dale Johnson and Chester captain George Horan were both sent off in Saturday’s meeting – and he feels Halifax are in the mood to get the job done.
“We are two good sides and it’s bound to be a battle, but we want to do well in the competition and we’ve definitely got the ability to go through,” said Glennon, who was beaten by a stunning 35-yarder from Antoni Sarcevic before Simon Hackney hit back to level.
“It was the first goal we’ve conceded in four and a half games, so I wasn’t best impressed, but to be fair it was a cracking shot and we got one back which was just as good.
“After that we probably felt we had the best chance to win the game with a one-on-one right at the end, but we are just determined to get the win tonight and move on to the next challenge.”
Lincoln, who visit Mansfield tonight in the Blue Square Premier, have not had to play in the earlier rounds of the Cup.
