MARCH boss Brett Whaley faces a tough task lifting his players for Saturday's league match at Stowmarket after league leaders Hadleigh inflicted their second win over the Hares in four days in devastating fashion.
March chairman Phil White had described Tuesday night's quarter-final as his club's biggest match of the season.
