LOWESTOFT Town joint boss Ady Gallagher says he does not care who his side get in today's FA Vase semi-final draw.

After watching his side destroy Bideford 4-0 with a scintillating second half performance on Saturday, Gallagher was in confident mood ahead of this morning's last four draw.

“We're happy to play whoever is put in front of us, just as we did last year,” said Gallagher. “We know that we will be a good test for whoever gets pulled out of the hat.”

Reflecting on the game, Gallagher - who jointly manages the Blues alongside the long-serving Micky Chapman - said: “Our second goal after half-time time just seemed to deflate them. It was an important goal and with that two-goal cushion we certainly felt we could play the game out.

“We've had a few sticky patches this season when we've had to grind out the results when perhaps the football was not flowing so freely, but we're playing well at the moment.”

Lowestoft winger Jamie Godbold added: “It's been well documented how fit we have got ourselves this season and I think that showed again in the second half today.

“To be in the semi-finals for the second year running is absolutely unbelievable. The run last year gave us so much belief and the fact we have been to Wembley once means that getting there this year isn't simply a pipedream.”

Micky Chapman said: “We'll enjoy tonight but we're not getting carried away - we always take it one game at a time and that's what we will continue to do.

“The fans will be dreaming of Wembley but we won't talk about it in the dressing room.

We just want to stay in the competition and we hope we can.”
