STEVE Davis has urged football fans from across South Cheshire to converge on Jackson Avenue and help Nantwich Town make the next step towards their cup dream.
The Dabbers will be involved in arguably the biggest game in their history on Saturday (3pm) when they entertain Pickering Town in the quarter final of the FA Vase.
Almost 1,000 people roared them on to victory in the last round against Buxton, and Davis believes a big crowd can help them take a step closer to the final at the weekend.
He said: 'I am very proud to be the manager of a team who have achieved unprecedented success in the FA Vase.
'It would be great if we had a big turnout against Pickering. It really helps and gives an extra buzz to the occasion. Crewe Alex are playing on Friday so all their fans are welcome to Jackson Avenue on Saturday.'
The player-manager added: 'It is going to be another massive day for us, and another opportunity we don't want to let pass us by. Now we have got this far, we want to win it.
'Every team in the last eight will think they have a chance. This one is unusual because we will be the favourites for the first time, and we have to handle that expectancy. We want to attack and win.'
The prize at the end of the road is the final at Birmingham City's St Andrews stadium. But the Dabbers will have to get past a confident Pickering first.
They ply their trade in the Northern Counties East League Premier Division, and have beaten Nantwich's last victims Buxton this season.
Their player-boss Alex Mathie said: 'I went to the Nantwich v Buxton game on a spying mission and the visitors were the better side.
'I saw enough to suggest that we can cause them problems and we definitely have a chance if we play to our potential. Nantwich are big and powerful and a fairly well-organised but we have players who can do well against them.'
Davis, who should be fit to play, will be without striker Andy Kinsey, who has a rib injury, but should have the rest of his squad ready for action.
Forward James Marrow, who has missed most of the season with a broken foot, looked a ready-made replacement after firing in the winner for the Dabbers in a Division One clash at Atherton Collieries on Saturday.
In the 25th minute Paul Taylor's pass was helped on by Matt Blake and former Crewe Alex trainee Marrow stabbed home the only goal of the game.
Davis felt the game itself was not ideal preparation for the Vase, but was glad of maximum points. He added: 'It was a very difficult game on a difficult surface. Atherton have surprised a few sides this season despite their lowly position and made us work hard for the victory.
'We lost composure at times but points are precious when you are seeking promotion and it keeps us in the hunt.'
Nantwich Town's reserves saw their clash with Darwen postponed due to a waterlogged pitch on Saturday.
