STOURBRIDGE boss Gary Hackett is hoping Saturday's trip to Loughborough Dynamo can be the start of another memorable FA Cup campaign.

The Glassboys made it all the way to the third round last term before having their dreams dashed at the hands of Wycombe Wanderers.

Cup runs and giant-killings have become a staple in recent years and the Amblecote outfit is eyeing more of the same this season.

Hackett said: "We must go there with the right attitude. Because of what we have achieved in the competition before, it means that we are a big scalp for some other sides at this stage. We have had Loughborough watched but need to make sure we are at our best.

"The FA Cup is a massive competition for management, players and supporters and we'll be doing our utmost to go on a good run again.

"It might not happen but we'll be giving it our all.

"Once you have a taste of something you love then all you want to do is have more of it.

"That day at Wycombe will live long in the memory because of the support we had, the way we played and everything about the day. Once you experience that then you want to do it all again."

Glassboys go into the cup clash on the back of a much-needed 2-1 win at Rushall Olympic on Monday.

Leon Broadhurst bagged two early headers at Dales Lane to set up his side's victory The win saw them bounce back from last Saturday's disappointing 2-0 home defeat to Marine and left their manager praising his squad's determination.

"We were very, very poor against Marine, as bad as we've been for many years," said Hackett. "We don't have many that bad and I can only apologise to the supporters that came to watch us.

"The good thing was that we had 48 hours until we could put it right and we did that and deserved the win at Rushall.

"It's still early days and it's clear we're not at our best but we have shown really good character to get 11 points on the board despite that.

"I'm still trying to find the right balance and we are still looking to bring the right players in.

Meanwhile, striker Jordan Archer is currently being tracked by Walsall.

The Walsall-born front man trained with his home-town club last Thursday and was watched by their scouts against Rushall.

Stour are now waiting to see if they decide to follow up their interest.

Hackett said: "Jordan is a very unselfish player and this really respected here. He played for us on Monday even though he was struggling a little with injury.

"The fact he has interested Walsall is a credit to himself. He works very hard, has improved his body strength. You can lead a horse to water but you can't always make it drink. But Jordan has worked with (coach) Mark Clifton and really improved a lot in his time here."
