Romford captain believes in FA Cup shock
Romford captain Jack Barry believes the club can pull off an FA Cup shock when they face Ryman Premier side Bury Town in the first qualifying round at Ship Lane tomorrow.
Boro welcome the side from the division above them hoping to cause an upset and skipper Barry believes they will relish having the tag of underdogs.
He admitted the players are ‘buzzing’ ahead of the match and is sure the two teams will produce a great contest.
“We have nothing to lose at the end of the day, they are a league above and we are the underdogs,” said Barry.
“I will take that because we have no pressure on us whatsoever, so hopefully we can go out there and play some nice football and get the result.
“It is not hard to be buzzing for an FA Cup game because it’s the biggest cup in the country and just to be a part of it should get everyone up for it. I am sure all the players are because it’s going to be a great game.”
Romford manager Paul Martin and assistant boss Alex Goldstone watched Bury earlier this week and have given the players information on tomorrow’s opponents.
Barry hopes that can make a difference and also revealed the players go into the match with great confidence, after they secured a last-gasp win over local rivals Redbridge on Wednesday evening.
He added: “Magic and Alex went to watch Bury on Tuesday and we have got a game-plan ahead of Sunday’s game.
“They have done their homework on some of Bury’s key players and what their strengths are.
“It was very important to get the win against Redbridge after how we performed in the second half against Tilbury (a 2-2 draw). We had to put things right and that will give us confidence going into our FA Cup game against Bury.”
