Speaking to the club website after last night's second round draw, he said: "There's a game to be won and, in this case, a place in the third round with the clubs from the top tier to aim for.
"We have nothing to fear and if we show the same attention to detail which has made us very hard to beat recently, we'll give ourselves a real chance."
