Charlie Blakemore has called on football fans from across the Midlands to roar Chasetown into the FA Cup first round for the first time.
The Scholars boss says the vocal home support can be a major factor in helping the Midland Alliance minnows conquer Blyth Spartans when the sides meet in tonight's fourth qualifying round replay.
Chasetown expect the biggest ever crowd at the Scholars to witness the biggest game in their history, with the knowledge that the winners will entertain League One side Oldham Athletic.
Chasetown's record crowd at the Scholars currently stands at 659 against Tamworth in an FA Cup-tie in
Blakemore said: "I want to make a rallying call to football fans to come and support us. We are hoping to get a crowd of more than 1,000.
"The crowd up at Blyth was really partisan and we stood the test but we need the
support of as many fans as possible tonight."
Chasetown celebrated their result in the north-east with a Saturday night-out in Newcastle but Blakemore says they need to produce another heroic effort against the Uni-Bond Premier side.
"Blyth are still the favourites because they play two leagues higher. My players played the game of their lives on Saturday but we've got to do even better tonight," said Blakemore.
Goalkeeper Martin Taylor retains the No 1 jersey after replacing the injured Simon Bryan for Saturday's match, while defender Matt Bytheway and striker Danny Smith are also ruled out.
Utility man Kevin Wilkin has abandoned plans for a Hong Kong break to help Nuneaton Borough's to reach the first round for the first time in five years.
Wilkin, who is also Nuneaton's assistant manager, had planned to go to Hong Kong with his wife, who is a British Airway air steward, but his plans were wrecked when Boro failed to defeat Tiverton Town on Saturday and now they face a tricky replay at the Southern Premier side tonight.
Manager Roger Ashby said: "I don't think his wife was best pleased but he has changed his plans. That's commitment for you."
Boro will also need an extra touch of ruthlessness at Tivvy tonight after Ashby described Saturday's 0-0 draw as an "afternoon of frustration".
Midfielder Martin Reeves and defender Simon Rea are both doubts with illness, while centre-half Neil Moore will be sidelined for two weeks with a shin infection. Tonight's winners entertain Ramsgate in the first round.
