Harrow Borough vs Hastings United David Howell reckons Hastings United will be out for revenge when they visit Earlsmead for Saturday's FA Trophy Second Qualifying Round clash (3pm kick off).
Harrow picked up their sole victory of the Ryman Premier season so far with a 2-0 win over the Arrows at the Pilot Field last month. However, since that defeat Hastings have won six of their nine league games including Tuesday's 3-1 win over Ramsgate.
"We've already beaten them and they will want revenge to rectify that result," said the Boro boss.
"We haven't got an easy tie as we're up against a team from our own division that wants to get one over on us. There is no benefit from playing a team from the same division.
"We don't have the luxury of playing a lower league team where the game is yours to lose. We've got to do something extra to get through on Saturday."
Borough remain bottom of the league, despite an encouraging 1-1 draw against promotion-chasing Tooting & Mitcham United on Tuesday, a game Howell believes was there for the taking.
"It was our fifth draw of the season and I see that as 10 points gone begging," he said.
"We played well again on Tuesday and in the dressing room afterwards it felt like we had lost. You could not tell which team was fourth and which was bottom of the table.
"But Saturday is a cup game, a one-off where your league position has no bearing on matters."
