BRIDLINGTON Town go into tomorrow’s East Riding Senior Cup semi-final in the unusual position of being underdogs.

The Seasiders are the holders, but take on high-flying North Ferriby United in Hull, with their opponents top of the Evo-Stik Premier Division.

But Town manager Mitch Cook believes it will be a good test for his squad, pitting their wits against a side managed by one of his predecessors Billy Heath.

Cook said: “We are going into this match to win it. Why enter the competition if you don’t think you can win it?

“I went to watch Ferriby at Whitby amd they were magnificent. They were strong and direct, but they had quality players throughout the side.

“They are a very, very good team and I would suggest Billy Heath has spent his money well.

“It will be nice to go into a game where we are not the favourites, maybe that will take a bit of pressure of our lads.”

Kick off at the Roy West Centre in Inglemire Lane is at 7.30pm on Tuesday. The winners will meet Hull City or Reckitts who play on Wednesday.
