THE latest obstacle blocking Warrington Rylands’ path to Wembley was already huge.

Manager Dave McNabb has described FA Vase quarter-final opponents Hebburn Town as the best team in the country at their level, which would be a big enough illustration of the task facing his side.

Add to the mix that Saturday’s visitors to Gorsey Lane will now arrive as the defending champions having beaten Consett in the delayed 2019-20 final on Monday and said task becomes even more unenviable.

That said, McNabb’s confidence in his Blues squad is unwavering as they look to continue an already historic run.

“We’ve got arguably the best team in the country at our level coming here,” he said.

“If we get past them, you can’t help but start to have a little look at what might follow the semi-final.

“We’re always confident going into any game because we can hurt teams.

“That’s not to say we’re arrogant and think we’re going to win every week – of course we’re not, we’re nowhere near the finished article. Far from it.

“We’ve got a great group and when you don’t give up and you’re willing to fight and go into the trenches for each other, you’ve always got a chance.”

The winners of Saturday’s tie, which kicks off at 3pm behind closed doors at Gorsey Lane, will be rewarded with a home semi final against Walsall Wood on May 15.
