EVESHAM United manager Paul Collicutt wants his players to use their Worcestershire FA Senior Cup success as a springboard for the rest of the season.

The Robins stunned holders Stourbridge after they hit back from two goals down to win 3-2 after extra-time in Tuesday's semi-final at the Memorial Ground.

While it has kept them in the hunt for some silverware, they now turn their attention to climbing the Southern League Division One South and West table with a trip to Swindon Supermarine tomorrow (3pm).

Collicutt said: "The lads have set themselves a standard so I will be very disappointed if they drop below that. It was a very pleasing performance from the starting 11 and the three subs that got on, everybody contributed to a good performance.

"They proved that when they play well they can beat some very good sides. If we can work on doing that in league games, hopefully we will start turning the corner."

Striker James Vercesi (ankle) has been ruled out for at least a fortnight, while attacking midfielder Marcus Jackson completes a three-game ban.

Striker Carl Brown, sent off for two yellow cards against Stourbridge, does not start his ban until Tuesday, February 18.

Meanwhile, Collicutt has thanked the Evesham fans who braved the weather to support the team at Stourbridge.
