Tamworth head down the M25 tonight knowing the prize for victory in their FA Trophy replay will be another trip to Essex.
The Lambs will have striker Danny Davidson and defender Peter Folkes back in contention for their third clash with Dagenham & Redbridge inside three weeks.
And yesterday's quarter-finals draw paired the winners with an away clash at Trophy holders Grays Athletic. Grays, who won non-League's premier knockout in a penalty shoot-out at Villa Park in May, have already ended the Midlands hopes of Kidderminster Harriers and Hereford United.
Cooper felt Saturday's goalless draw with Dagenham was a fair result, but he is unfazed about the prospect of travelling to Victoria Road tonight. Though the Lambs lost 2-1 there last month, he feels his side will benefit from having the physical presence of Davidson back up-front. The former Stafford Rangers striker was ruled out of Saturday's match because of suspension.
"Dagenham came for a draw on Saturday but I'm still confident we can get through," said Cooper. "We've got to go down there now but playing away seems to suit us better at the moment."
Defender Folkes is also available after a knee injury but Scott Rickards (cup-tied) and Bob Taylor (foot injury) are still absent.
* Nuneaton Borough can welcome back Martin Reeves and Stuart Whittaker aftersix week absences as they bid to dump Wolverhampton Wanderers out of the Birmingham Senior Cup tonight.
Midfielder Reeves has not started a game since Boxing Day due to a knee injury while winger Whittaker has started just two matches
since then with a hamstring problem, but manager Roger Ashby will hope their returns can spark a misfiring Boro who have scored just two goals in their last seven league matches.
"We've had a glut of injuries so it's great news that Reeves and Whittaker are back fit," said Ashby.
Boro face a Wolves side who will include keeper Matt Murray in the quarter-final tie at Manor Park.
Bromsgrove Rovers face the second of a three-part test of their play-off potential when they head to second-placed Ashford Town (Middlesex) in Southern League Division One West.
Manager Rod Brown, who continues his hunt for a striker, watched his side more than match fellow contenders Marlow on Saturday in a goalless draw, while they follow tonight's fixture with a clash with Sutton Coldfield Town on Saturday.
Bedworth United manager Mark Hallam has acted to put the strike back into their misfiring attack by targeting three forwards.
Hallam, frustrated by the lack of goals which has dented the Greenbacks' push into the play-offs, confirmed he has made approaches for Oldbury United forward Luke Reynolds, Coventry Sphinx top scorer Adam Kinder and Atherstone Town sharpshooter Chris Partridge. Talks will take place this week.
The Greenbacks tackle Swindon Supermarine tonight at the Oval, with defender Danny Pitham back after suspension.
