Brackley manager Jon Brady said his side are full of belief ahead of the FA Cup second round clash with Macclesfield.

The Skrill North side reached the second round of the competition for the first time in their 123-year history when Glenn Walker's first-half strike clinched a 1-0 victory over Sky Bet League One outfit Gillingham in the first-round replay.

Brady believes this vital experience of beating higher-placed opponents will stand the Saints in good stead for the trip to Moss Rose.

He told thefa.com: "The Gillingham games have given us real belief.

"Against higher quality opposition in the FA Cup, we've shown that if you play to the best of your ability and they have an off day, then anything can happen and it happened against Gillingham.

"In the last six months, we've had five of our biggest ever games - and the players responded each time.

"We've not won them all but we're getting used to these kind of games and came through the last one [against Gillingham] really positively.

"There's excitement. It's unknown territory for us and an opportunity to stay in the spotlight."

Dover head to Buckinghamshire dreaming of causing an upset when they take on League One side MK Dons.

Whites goalkeeper Mitch Walker believes the Skrill South club are capable of taking something from the game.

He told Dover's official website: "In the previous rounds, we've been favourites so the pressure has been on us. On Saturday, I don't expect many people to give us a chance but we're fine with that.

"It's a good opportunity for us all to show what we can do. There are a lot of players in our side, myself included, who think we can play League football in the future so this is a chance for us to prove ourselves.

"There's a great mix of experience and youth in the side too - as well as our younger players, guys like Nathan Elder and Terrell Forbes have been there before and their experience helps us all out, both on and off the pitch.

"I think we can be confident of getting something out of it. There have been much bigger shocks in the FA Cup before, and we're all going there confident of getting a result."

Calor Southern League Premier side Stourbridge are full of confidence ahead of their trip to Stevenage.

The two sides met at the same stage of the competition two years ago, with the League One side running out 3-0 winners, but Stourbridge boss Gary Hackett is keen to taste victory this time around.

He told BBC Sport: "I'd like to think we're stronger than we were two years ago, and possibly they're not as strong so we've got a chance. We've got to believe it could be our day."

Following their first-round victory over local rivals Scunthorpe, Grimsby are hopeful of claiming another Football League scalp when they take on Northampton.

Mariners boss Paul Hurst told the Grimsby Telegraph: "It's a big game, there's no getting away from that. The potential prize of getting through this round could be very big."
