Today, Stevenage manager Graham Westley has made a firm warning in the direction of Roberto Martinez and his Everton side ahead of this Saturdays FA cup 3rd round clash.

Westley, manager of league 1 side Stevenage, has spoken about how he feels Everton will struggle at the Lamex stadium this coming weekend. The overly excited manager said, "Everton won't be able to play their game on our pitch, there is more bad weather forecast so it will only get worse".

Martinez takes his side 200 miles south on Saturday to face the Boro at their Hertfordshire home. Westley continued, "We will use the pitch and its condition to our advantage. Their expansive football will take a battering on this type of pitch." He added, "We are under no illusions of the importance of game, we will sweat blood to win it".

The game is of importance to the Blues who will be aiming to win the trophy this time round.

Stevenage have an inflatable cover over the pitch which will prevent the pitch from under going any drastic changes thanks to the for coming weather. Of course Westley had a comment to make on that as well and stated "The pitch will be playable, but just won't be what Everton are expecting, our fans will also be something they may not be expecting as I'm sure they will act as another player for us".

Everton need to ensure they travel and do the business, as the FA cup this season must be seen as one of Roberto's season objectives, to either win or gain a semi final or final place in. Tim Howard is expected to be rested for the game and maybe even Coleman as their replacements, Robles and Stones respectively, look to put their name into Martinez' selection thoughts once more.
