'Our work-rate has been terrific and we must look to maintain that.
'If we can do that then we will give ourselves every chance.
'˜The players are giving everything at the moment and I can't ask for any more than that.
'It is a national competition and we want to go as far in it as we can.
'There are some good teams in the competition and no easy games from here on in.
'This is another opportunity to put little old Baffins on the non-league football map.
'We are an up-and-coming club that is growing all the time.
'Our focus at the moment, though, is on getting past Bradford Town.'
Leigh has the luxury of a full-strength squad to choose from.
