Craig Elliott has warned his Boston United side not to let their hearts rule their heads on Monday night.
The Pilgrims’ stuck to their game plan as they held League One Rochdale to a goalless draw at Spotland.
But this week’s FA Cup replay will be a completely different spectacle as thousands pack into York Street for the televised contest, the winners hosting Premier League Newcastle United.
Despite instrumental midfielders Andi Thanoj and Brad Abbott ruled out through injury and suspension, Elliott believes the best way to cause an upset would be for Boston to keep with the style of play which has served them so well in recent weeks.
“We’ve got a few out and that can change the dynamics, but it’s about repetition really,” he said.
“We’ve been playing well recently. It’s about lads relying on that confidence.
“We’ve done a lot of repetition in training, just the only thing that will change on Monday is the emotion.”
