We have nothing to lose at Colwyn Bay - Ossett Town boss Craig Elliott

Craig Elliott hopes fortunate will favour the brave as Ossett Town aim to continue their magical FA Cup adventure on Saturday.
Ossett visit Conference North outfit Colwyn Bay side for the third qualifying round encounter which could see Town reach the fourth qualifying round for only the second time in their history.
Ossett beat AFC Emley comfortably in the Preliminary Round before seeing off Bamber Bridge and then Warrington Town after replays to book the tie with the Welsh outfit.
Town were on a nine-match unbeaten until last Saturday’s defeat to Darlington 1883, but Elliott says Ossett will give their all.
“We’ve had a really good run in the FA Cup this year,” he said.
“Financially it has been great for the club, but it’s also given the lads a lot of confidence from when we went to Warrington, who will do well in the league this year, and beat them.
“Saturday’s a good day out for us and something to look forward to.
“It’s a game to look forward to rather than be worried about because we can only come out of it in a good way. I hope we can do ourselves justice.
“I think you have to be realistic that we’re massive underdogs because they’re a Conference North team.
“They’re not flying in that league, but they have had a relatively decent start. I think we have to carry on in the way we have been. Let’s not be frightened and let’s see where it takes us.
“We have nothing to lose. On paper Colwyn Bay should win the game comfortably so we’re going to go there and give our best shot.”
