Berkeley Sports coach Jason Higgs doesn't plan on letting his side go into their shell when they play Illawarra Premier League defending champions Port Kembla on Wednesday.

The District League club meet Port in the Bert Bampton Cup semi-finals at Crehan Park for the chance to secure an unlikely berth in the competition's final next month.

And Higgs is adamant his squad won't be overawed.

"We won't really change the way we play. We like to attack," he said.

"We have got a few goal scorers in our team so we are not going to change too much.

"Obviously when we don't have the ball it will be important to get behind the ball and defend because they have four or five match winners on their team on any given day.

"But my guys aren't afraid to go forward and we have got enough experience to do that."

The competition's other semi-final will take place the following Wednesday night at the same venue between Picton and Wollongong United.

Rangers are another surprise addition to the final four after defeating Dapto Dandaloo Fury 1-0 in the quarter finals.
