Carlisle United manager Keith Curle says his sights are set on securing a lucrative FA Cup tie against top flight opposition.

The Blues have been drawn away to League One Gillingham in the second round of the competition.

But Curle is eying up a third round spot which could see Carlisle face Premier League opponents.

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."

The second round ties will be played between 1 and 4 December.
