Mark Morsley will stick to his attacking philosophy as he aims to recreate his own David versus Goliath legend against Cambridge United.

Ahead of the biggest match of his managerial career, the Needham Market boss was quick to quash any speculation that he would shelve his preferred 4-2-3-1 formation in order to accommodate the Skrill Conference Premier Division leaders.

Ollie Fenn (suspension) and David Wareham (injury) are both unavailable, but with the likely returns of Sheridan Driver, Jamie Guy and Keiran Morphew, and crucially the granted availability of on-loan Colchester United winger Ryan Melaugh, Morsley is adamant of sticking to his attacking ways.

“We will be setting out 
to attack with width, that’s 
for sure,” he said. “We might be tighter through the 
middle, but I’ll have my wingers out there because in a one-on-one situation I’d fancy our chances of causing problems.

“The two lads out wide in Luke Ingram and Ryan Melaugh are lightning quick and we’ll be looking to make the most out of that.”

Despite being fully aware of the biblical task facing his side, Morsley is excited of the prospect of causing a famous shock akin to that of the bible tale.

“These players have a huge chance to make a name for themselves and that’s exciting,” he added. “We know it is a real David versus Goliath tale, but who knows what might happen.

“Everyone remembers the Histon and Leeds shock and, like them, we have nothing to lose.”
