Regent boss says a sense of "injustice" will spur his players on in Vase replay
BRIGHTLINGSEA REGENT boss James Webster feels a sense of injustice will spur his players on in tonight’s FA Vase replay at Colney Heath.
The sides drew 2-2 in Saturday’s third-round encounter at North Road.
However, Regent were left feeling frustrated after conceding two late goals.
The second was a much-debated penalty and then, in the closing seconds, Brightlingsea had appeals for a spot-kick of their own waved away after what looked a blatant foul on Terry Rymer.
The same player had also had legitimate claims for another penalty earlier in the contest.
It means the sides will try again in a replay tonight, with the winner facing a home draw against Bodmin Town.
“Saturday was disappointing and hard to take,” said Webster.
“But we’ll pick ourselves up and go again.
“It’ll be difficult and it’s a long way to go in midweek.
“But we’ll be up for it and we’ll bounce back.
“I don’t think I’ll have to lift the players.
“There was a sense of injustice about what happened at the weekend and that’ll fire them up.”
The fourth-round draw took place yesterday morning and this is the first national round, with the others so far having been regional.
“We’re still in the tie and it’s another opportunity to make it through to the last 32,” said Webster.
Meanwhile, WITHAM TOWN are in Ryman One North action tonight, at home to Redbridge.
Garry Kimble’s side are third in the table after Saturday’s fantastic 4-1 victory at home to leaders VCD Athletic.
