TAUNTON Town's interim manager Rob Dray says his side will approach tonight's FA Cup match at home to St Albans City "with no fear".

The Peacocks welcome their National League South opponents to the Viridor Stadium tonight (ko 7.45pm) for a third round qualifying tie delayed by St Albans being taken to a replay by Corinthian Casuals in the previous round.

The winner of the tie will earn £15,000 in FA prize money, and a trip to Billericay Town in fourth round qualifying on October 20.

Taunton's win over Frome Town on Saturday took them up to second in the Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Division South standings, but St Albans - managed by former Arsenal player Ian Allinson - are currently sixth in the division above and have won their last four league matches.

So the Peacocks go into the match as clear underdogs, but they do have centre-back Keith Emmerson fit after injury, and Shane White has recovered from the dead leg sustained on Saturday.

Captain Matt Wright serves the second part of his three-match ban, but Ryan Brett is free to play despite his red card against Frome (his suspension begins this weekend).

Striker Dan Sullivan will face a late fitness test after missing last weekend's game with a calf problem.

Dray told the County Gazette: "I think Sully [Sullivan] should be alright, as the extra day [playing on Wednesday rather than Tuesday] has helped.

"We have to defend well tonight and not make any personal errors.

"It's a big ask but I think we have a better squad than two years ago [when Taunton reached the first round proper], and it's a one-off cup game.

"If we start properly and we're not chasing the game, we have a chance.

"St Albans are the kind of club we want to be playing every week.

"We'll go into it with no fear and give it everything."

As for what difference £15,000 would make to the club, he added: "It would be massive, a real lifeblood.

"It keeps [finance director] Alan Slade happy, and allows us a couple of extra things.

"With another £15k and the gate money, that would set the club up for the rest of the season."
