Ripon City and Boroughbridge take to Harrogate Railway’s Station View tomorrow to battle for the Whitworth Cup.
Holders City will head into it as favourites after beating ‘Bridge twice this season.
But boss Paul Vincent reckons cup finals throw the form book out of the window.
“We are the holders of the cup and we are not going to give it up lightly,” he said.
“It is a big occasion, a local derby and a cup final.”
‘Bridge boss Daz Ekin may rest players to boost league survival hopes but he insists the side will give everything to securing the cup.
“Whatever side we put out we will be going for it,” he said.
“But they will be tough.”
Kick off is at Station View, 7.45pm on Tuesday.
