Boss Blake was at the game and says he was impressed with the visitors. He said: “They have plenty of strengths and also have a great team unity and Dean has got them playing so we are under no illusions that it’s going to be tough test.

“The magic of the cup isn’t lost on us and we want to go as far as we can in the competition so we will be at it, you can count on it. It’s a Sussex derby as well, so the fans will demand that we are on our game. We are really looking forward to it, it should be a great occasion!”
