LIVERTON United boss Tony Bowker admitted he might be picking the brains of Stoke Gabriel player-manager Gary Fisher ahead of a clash with Camelford on Saturday (3pm).
Fisher masterminded a cup upset against the Cornish side last weekend, with Stoke winning their Throgmorton Cup tie 3-2 at Trefrew Park.
Bowker's men are taking on the Camels in the Premier Division this weekend, and will relish the trip after last weekend's surprise scoreline.
Liverton will be further buoyed by their showing against title-chasing Plymouth Parkway, despite a 1-0 defeat for the Lilywhites at Halford last Saturday.
Ryan Richards' deflected goal was the difference between the sides last weekend, while Liverton midfielder Jordan Lam hit the post with a second half effort.
Bowker said a point would have been nothing less than his players deserved.
"We made one mistake and we got punished for it," said Bowker.
"We fell asleep and left the lad [Richards] unmarked at the back post, but it was still a great volley and it took a deflection.
"But apart from that we more than held our own – all credit to the lads, they played really well and on another day we might have snatched a draw."
He added: "It shows the difference in the team that they were gutted to have only just been beaten by a top side."
Recent changes to Liverton's squad have included the addition of former Buckland Athletic utility man Cameron Kelly (pictured above, on left), while another signing to bolster to defence is imminent.
Simon Lewcock and Liam Ford have been among players heading the other way, with both joining Galmpton United.
Bowker said: "We've got a good squad now who are all vying for places, and I would like us to go on a run and get some points under our belt.
"We've got to start getting some results to go with our performances."
