United relish underdog status ahead of big match

ASCOT United will have the biggest day in the club's history on Saturday when they face Shildon in the FA Vase quarter-final.
The Yellamen begin their 530-mile round trip this afternoon (Friday) and will stay overnight at a hotel en route to County Durham.
Their opponents, Shildon, play in the highly competitive Northern League but have had their last two league games postponed due to the weather.
United are big underdogs for the tie but a win would put them one game away from Wembley.
But midfielder Sam Wadieh told the News: "We're not scared of anyone. "We like the underdog status - it means less pressure on us."
