SWINDON Supermarine manager Lee Spalding has voiced a rallying cry to his players ahead of their Wiltshire Senior Cup semi-final against Westbury United tonight (7.45pm) at Royal Wootton Bassett.

Spalding has told his players they must be at ‘full tilt’ if they want to stand a chance of advancing to the final, and has warned them that anything less may result in a surprise exit to Toolstation Premier side Westbury.

Marine have already beaten lower-league opposition en route to the final with Melksham Town and Highworth town being dumped out in the two previous rounds.

The Marine chief believes his side can compete for honours on two levels if they reach a target number of wins in the league and says his players will be treating this cup game with the same respect as a Southern Premier division fixture.

He said: “It’s obviously a game that we want to win, and we’ll be going into with the mindset of wanting to reach the final.

“It’s a competition that we feel we can win, and we’ll be taking it as seriously as a league game.

“We want to win every game that we go into and this game against Westbury will be no different.

“It’s a great opportunity for us to go into this game and make sure we’re at full tilt and nothing else will do.

“We need to be right on our mettle, we’ll need to make sure we’re on the front foot from the start and we need to go out there and get a result.”

Westbury have scored 14 goals in their three games up to this point and sit second in their league.

The Marine boss believes Westbury will need no help with regards to their motivation levels for the tie - adding that his players should expect as tough a test.

Spalding will therefore approach the game like a Southern League fixture.

He said: “I know they got promoted last season and they’re doing really well this season too.

"They’re going to want to be at their best and try and give a good account of themselves.

“They’ll want to turn us over because we’re obviously higher opposition and due to the fact it’s a semi-final.

"They’ll be looking to make sure they cause an upset and it’s up to us to make sure we go into it in the right frame of mind.

“I know we’re a couple of levels above them, but it doesn’t matter."
