CONCORD manager Danny Cowley admits he will be making full use of his quality squad this weekend after their attritional midweek county cup semi-final win at Hornchurch.

Second-half goals from Matt Fry and Gary Ogilvie gave the Beachboys a 2-0 win on a challenging Urchins pitch on Tuesday to book their place in the final of the Essex Senior Cup for the second season running.

Holders Concord will face the winners of Monday’s other last four clash between Ryman teams Aveley and Billericay in the final at Victoria Road on Monday, April 20.

But before then Rangers have 11 Vanarama South fixtures to negotiate – starting with a trip to fourth-placed Basingstoke on Saturday.

Cowley (pictured) said: “It was difficult at Hornchurch and the players showed a lot of desire to win a game that was not easy on the eye.

“But it was important for us as this is the only competition we could realistically win this year. And after being in three finals in three years – we are used to winning things.

“We’ll go along and watch the other semi on Monday night but it will be a tough final, whoever gets through. Billericay are a big and strong side and Aveley have match-winners, so it should be a good game.

“But for now we have to stay focussed on the league games we have before that final.

“I watched Basingstoke beat Boreham Wood 4-0 a few weeks ago and it was the best Conference South performance I have seen this year.

“And they have players like James Harper, who was playing in the Premier League four seasons ago, so we know just how tough this will be.

“But all my players are up for it. After Hornchurch they were all putting their hands up, wanting to play again this weekend.

“But I don’t know what my best XI is at the moment and I have to manage the squad well so we will have to change it around to make sure we are ready to perform in the way we want to.”
