BOSS Mark Phillips warned Stourport Swifts another sluggish start on Saturday would spell the end for their FA Vase dream.

Swifts take on lower-ranked Cadbury Athletic in the national competition (3pm) on the back of a 2-1 Midland League Premier Division defeat to Coventry United, writes Andy Mitchell.

Phillips's men made a woeful start with individual errors gifting Kai Williams a brace inside 13 minutes. Reece Shilvock halved the deficit with a penalty before half-time but there was no way through in the second half.

"The lads were not at the races and they scored two goals from individual errors," said Phillips.

"To be honest, they could have had another couple but we finally got ourselves together and started to play like we know we can after about half an hour.

"In the second half, we played pretty well but the ball did not run for us. We were certainly well on top but we gave ourselves too much to do."

"We played Cadbury in one of the cups last year and they were a decent outfit. It will be a hard game and we need to show a much better attitude from the off than we did last weekend."

Other than the suspended Sam Beasley, Phillips expects to have a full complement to choose from.
