Marcus Law is backing his Kettering Town players to pull off an Emirates FA Cup upset and book themselves a place in the first round proper.

The Poppies, who are struggling in the Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Division and sit in 16th place following Tuesday’s 2-2 draw at Biggleswade Town, head to Vanarama National League side Solihull Moors in the fourth qualifying round tomorrow (Saturday).

But despite their poor form in the league, boss Law believes he has enough quality in his squad to claim a surprise result and secure a spot alongside the Sky Bet League One and Two clubs in the first-round draw.

“Football is football and anything can happen,” the Poppies boss said.

“We have all seen many a strange result down the years and that’s what the FA Cup is all about.

“I know I have a group who are playing for each other and we also have a bit of quality in there as well.

“I think some of our players have shown that on their day they can be match-winners.

“We have to make sure we make life difficult for Solihull.

“They will be confident and they will believe they have the experience and extra quality to win the game.

“We have to go there and try to disrupt their game and see if we can get our own game going as well.

“It’s a big day for the players and the fans and I am sure there will be a large following making the trip and getting behind us.”
