HALESOWEN Town boss Paul Smith is sending his troops in search of yet more FA Trophy glory with all guns blazing at Barnet on Saturday - vowing: "Underestimate us at your peril".

The Yeltz head south for their historic quarter-final clash with National League opposition with a virtually fully fit squad for Smith to choose from - and a stark message for opponents three divisions above them in the non-league pyramid.

Another giant-killing victory would, incredibly, leave Halesowen just a two-leg semi-final away from a Wembley cup final, in a memorable season which also currently sees them sitting top of the Southern League Central Division One table, with games n hand on the sides chasing them.

But Smith and his squad are, for now, fully focussed on creating another upset on the Trophy trail.

He said: "It's full steam ahead for Saturday now - we are all excited and looking forward to it.

"We couldn't be going into it in finer fettle, we are heading down on Friday and the squad are all hungry for it.

"Barnet have sold more than 500 tickets to Yeltz supporters on their pre-sales site already, so with those who go and pay on the day we're estimating there could be between 700-800 of them there to cheer us on.

"All roads lead to London for us now - We have proved we are a very, very good side and yes, we will be underdogs, but if they underestimate us on the day we know we can beat them.

"We have an inner belief in the club that we can win if we are at our best."

Only long-term injury absentees George Forsyth and Reece Hewitt are missing from Smith's squad for a game which will have to be decided on the day via extra-time and penalties if the sides are all square after 90 minutes.

Yeltz maintained their blistering league form last Saturday when goals from Simeon Cobourne, Ashley Sammons, Luke Yates and an own goal saw them to a 4-1 win at AFC Dunstable.

Town have also been boosted with the announcement manager Smith has signed a rolling 18-month contract.

A statement on the club's website read: "We are delighted to secure the services of one of the best, if not the best young managers around for the foreseeable future."
