Mark Cooper expressed his bitter disappointment that Tamworth's FA Cup heroics have yet again been snubbed by the television companies.
The Lambs manager has plotted the Conference club's stunning upsets at Bournemouth and Hartlepool and then a draw at Championship side Stoke City in their first experience in the third round.
But TV pulled the plug on Tamworth's hopes of the replay at The Lamb being broadcast live - and netting a £150,000 windfall - when the BBC opted to broadcast Burton Albion's trip to Old Trafford.

Their Staffordshire neighbours' match with Manchester United on Sunday had already been on Sky.
Cooper said: "I don't think we're going to be on TV unless we get into the semi-finals! Maybe there's someone at Sky or the BBC who just doesn't like us.
"We just don't seem to be getting any credit for beating two League One sides away from home and drawing at a Championship side like Stoke."
"Look at the replays and the only chance of an upset would seem to be Tamworth. It's going to be an old-fashioned Cup-tie on an old-fashioned non-League ground, with the fans breathing down the players' necks."
Yesterday's fourth round draw handed the winners home advantage against either Walsall or Barnsley, and Cooper says the Lambs would relish the chance against League One opponents to become the first non-League team since Kidderminster Harriers (1994) to reach the last 16.
Nuneaton Borough described the potential fourth-round derby tie with Coventry City as the biggest possible incentive to produce the biggest upset in FA Cup history.
Boro will face their nearest rivals if they can turn over Premiership side Middlesbrough a week tonight at the Riverside.
"It would be a dream come true to play Coventry - but first we've got to get past Middlesbrough," said Gez Murphy, Boro's goalscoring hero in Saturday's 1-1 draw.
Manager Roger Ashby said: "What an incentive! We've got a handful of ex-Coventry players with us and they would absolutely love to play City.
"But I think Middlesbrough will have something to say about whether that dream becomes a reality. It's just nice to be involved in the fourth round draw."
