Hall Road Rangers travel to Queensgate on Wednesday evening as they contest an East Riding Senior Cup Quarter-Final tie against Bridlington Town.
The sides are separated by three divisions in the non-league pyramid. Bridlington occupy 14th place in the Northern Premier League One East Division table whilst Rangers sit fourth in the Humber Premier League Premier Division table.
In the previous round of the competition, the Seasiders saw off NCEL Division One side Beverley Town by winning 5-4 on penalties after a 3-3 draw. Meanwhile, Rangers pulled off a big upset as they knocked out NCEL Premier Division league leaders North Ferriby FC with a 1-3 victory courtesy of a Tommy Waud brace and a Tom Oliver effort.
The last time these sides locked horns in the East Riding Senior Cup was in March 2011 at the Semi-Final stage. Rangers came from behind to win 2-1 thanks to goals from Martin Thacker and Tom Chippendale after Scott Phillips had given Bridlington the lead.
Giving his pre-match thoughts, Rangers manager Chris Burke said:
“It’s a bit of a free hit for us really. Being in the position where they are, everyone will be expecting Brid to obviously come away with the win.
I firmly believe what we’ve got in our changing room is good enough to match them at least and, if not, better them. If they turn up on the day like they did at Ferriby, they could maybe surprise some people and fingers crossed we’ll be in the next round of the cup.”
