LITTLE Oakley joint-boss Paul Sadler says his side must up their game, if they wants to book their place in the Border League Knockout Cup semi-finals.

The Acorns suffered a 2-1 defeat at Coggeshall last weekend and will be hoping to bounce back in tomorrow’s cup quarter-final at home to Great Bentley (3pm).

“Our players must take a hard look at themselves, if they want to progress,” said Sadler.

“We’ve been under-performing recently and got away with it, but last week our luck ran out.

“Hopefully, though, it will be the kick we needed to get back on track.”
