Maidstone are out to salvage something from a miserable season by retaining the Kent Senior Cup tonight.
The Stones, who beat Folkestone on penalties in last year’s final, are off to Hayes Lane to take on Bromley.
United have a poor record against the Lillywhites over three years in the National League, taking one point from six meetings, but they did beat them in the semi-finals of last season’s county cup.
Head coach Hakan Hayrettin wants his side to stand up and be counted and make the travelling Stones fans proud.
He said: “We want to try and put a team out that’s going to win.
“It means a lot to me - I don’t like losing.
“It’s about characters and personalities now, isn’t it?
“I keep saying this. I’m the kind of personality and character, I don’t want to lose anything but it’s down to them.
“It’s a good occasion for the supporters.
"They’re going to get behind their team as usual and we’ve just got to put in a performance they’ll be proud of.”
Bromley booked their place in the final by beating Faversham (4-1), Charlton U23s (3-1) and Tonbridge (1-0).
