Danny Higginbotham on the ball

Former Stoke City defender Danny Higginbotham has been helping Nantwich Town players prepare for their massive FA Cup 1st round tie at Stevenage.

Higginbotham joined in a recent 1st team training session at the Weaver Stadium.

And he also spoke (see below) about his involvement with the club and thoughts on the team’s FA Cup chances.

He said: “Their cup run has been brilliant. I don’t think many expected them to win their reply at Kettering.

“A look at their league form, many results have been close.

“They should go and enjoy Stevenage, all the pressure will be on them.  Everyone is expecting Stevenage to win, but the beauty of the FA Cup is that you do see upsets.”

Nantwich travel to League Two Stevenage this Saturday November 4. It’s only the second time in the club’s history that the Dabbers have made it to the 1st Round proper.

And despite their scratchy league form, Dave Cooke’s men have shown real cup spirit and many are tipping a major upset against an out of form Stevenage outfit.
