Focus on Points Rather Than Trophy Insists Heath

North Ferriby United manager Billy Heath is convinced his men won't have one eye on their FA Trophy quarter-final when they travel to Oxford City tonight.

A trip to Wembley is always going to capture the imagination of non-league clubs like Ferriby, who will face the winner of tonight's replay between Ebbsfleet United or Braintree Town in Saturday's quarter-final.

But with the Conference North play-offs now within four points, Heath wants his players to keep the FA Trophy out of their minds for one more game.

"Tonight's game is the most important because it's our next game," he told the Mail. "We cannot afford to look beyond it.

"Making the play-offs for the second year running would be huge and would be an achievement itself.

"But we are only thinking of Oxford because it is as important as the FA Trophy quarter-final.

"If we can pick up three points at Oxford, then it's game on as far as the play-offs are concerned.

"I said Saturday's game against Worcester and tonight's trip to Oxford City were crucial because they are near us in the table.

"We jumped two places on Saturday and we can jump

another place tonight.
