Graham Westley has been talking to Boro Player ahead of Saturday's FA Cup second round tie against Stourbridge and told us it's a magical competition.

"As football people who love the game, the magic that the cup brings, we’ve always loved it, we've always thrived on it. Hopefully this year will be no different.

"In the FA Cup you want to be at home. You hope and you pray when those balls are coming out that your name comes out first and it was terrific when we did come out first. From there you don’t really care who you get. You know whoever you play they’re going to want it just like you want it.

"We’ve got to make sure we build up our desire and we build up our confidence that we can win the game. We’re at home which is obviously an advantage. We’ve got to use that advantage.

"Any FA Cup game, any game in football, gets won on the day by the side that’s better on the day. We’ve got to make sure we’re that team, we’re looking forward to the game and I’m sure we can be that team.


"We know what it’s all about, we know what cup football’s all about, we know what winning’s all about and we’re in the mood for victory at the weekend."
