James Ferrara is dreaming of lifting another major trophy.

The Phantoms captain proudly held aloft the English Premier League play-off crown back in April.

Now the city club are four games away from potentially adding another piece of silverware to their collection.

They travel to fierce rivals Milton Keynes on Wednesday (7.45pm) for the opening leg of an EPL Cup semi-final clash. The second leg is at Planet Ice a week later.

Ferrara said: “It is a long time since the club have been involved in the latter stages of the cup.

“I’m proud of the guys for meeting one of our main objectives for the season in reaching the semi-finals and excited about the experience of playing in such big games.

“We did the hard part by qualifying in the first place and we know we are four good performances away from a trophy.”

Basingstoke and Guildford contest the other semi-final during this month.
