FORMER Town Reserve coach and goalkeeper Kevin Blackwell believes Scarborough's heroics have reignited the romance of the FA Cup.
Blackwell, the former Seadogs' goalkeeper, was in the team which beat Chelsea in a Littlewoods Cup tie at the McCain Stadium 14 years ago.
And Blackwell - now a prominent coach at Leeds - insists the Conference side have nothing to lose as they bid to repeat history in the fourth round on Saturday.
Blackwell said: "These lads have one of the greatest days in their careers ahead of them. All they need to do is give everything and have no regrets.
"Chelsea have caught everybody's imaginations this year with Roman Abramovich throwing mega money at the club, and suddenly they find themselves up against one of the smallest clubs in the country."
Top bosses like Alan Curbishley and Sam Allardyce have this season rejected the FA Cup's glamour in favour of the Premiership.
But for Blackwell, the contrast between rich and poor highlighted in games such as next Saturday's proves what the famous old knockout competition is all about.
