Man To Watch

Man To Watch

Kayode Odejayi scored the only goal of the game against Chester to settle the third-round tie at the Deva Stadium. And the Nigerian striker bagged his eighth goal of the season to set up Saturday's lucrative clash at Whaddon Road which could earn the club upwards of £250,000.

The game will be shown live on the BBC but Ward insists his men will not be fazed by the presence of the television cameras and will enjoy the occasion.

Ward: 'With playing Carlisle and Colchester in the week leading up to the game, the focus has had to be elsewhere so we haven't really had time to think about Newcastle yet.

'But I think that's helped us because we've been concentrating on other things and not had time to think about them too much - if we'd had all week to think about Newcastle we might have scared ourselves to death.

'Seriously though, I don't think the players are as nervous or tense about this game as they were at Chester. It's a big game for us and you can't hide that fact, but I think the bigger occasion was at the Deva Stadium because the winners new they would get the Newcastle game and all that goes with it.

'The prize on offer at Chester - not only from a financial and prestige point of view but from a footballing point of view with the chance to play against international stars - was so huge for clubs of that size.'
