A THIRD-round ticket with the opportunity of drawing a Betfred League One club awaits the winners of tomorrow’s Coral Challenge Cup second-round tie at Devonshire Road.

Millom overcame Red Star Belgrade before a crowd in the region of 1,200 in round one just under two weeks ago, but face tougher test this time around with National Conference League Premier Division side Siddal making the long trip to South Cumbria.

Siddal will prove a different task for the Woolybacks after accounting for St Helens outfit Clock Face Miners – winners against Millom in the NCL Divison Three play-offs last year – on their own pitch 24-0, but the Face did keep a clean sheet in the second half.

It is expected to be another money-spinning tie for Millom and player-coach Tom Sibley said: “The place is still buzzing after the Belgrade win, the lads are on a high and it bodes well for the Siddal game.

“We know we face a tough, hard game against a big and physical side, but we are home and it is they who have to make the long trek (from Halifax).

“We just have to back up the performance against Red Star and take the game to them but we are confident enough.”

A win for the Woolybacks – who reached round three last year, where they lost to another amateur side in Pilkington Recs – would give them the chance to play a professional League One club.

That could mean a trip up to West Cumbria to face either Workington Town or Whitehaven, or Millom welcoming one of them to their home ground.

“It would be great to have a professional club here,” said Sibley. “Haven or Town would be good but we have to overcome this hurdle first.

“Our ground is a fortress and there is no reason that we can’t turn them (Siddal) over.”

Chris Warren is carrying a shoulder injury and will face a late test while Rickie Donaghue has work commitments, other wise it will be a similar side that took on Red Star.

Sibley will once again have a strong bench also having a strong pack on the field with the rampant Ethan Kelly leading from the front..

Siddall progressed to round two of the BARLA National Cup last week with a 40-28 home win over Sharslton.

Walney Central make the long journey into Yorkshire for their rearranged first round tie in the National Cup first-round tie against Kinsley Hotel Raiders.

Ethan Furness returns to the Cents squad, having been unavailable for last week’s postponement.
