Kingstonian manager Hayden Bird says the club has a real chance of progressing to the third round of the FA Cup to potentially face a Premier League team.

Standing in the way are AFC Fylde.

“We are very pleased to be at home,” Bird told the Surrey Comet after appearing live on BBC2 to watch the draw on Monday night. “Potentially, the rewards are massive with introduction of the Premier League clubs in the third round.”

“The game will be very difficult but is unquestionably winnable. In order to pull this off, we need to fill the stadium with Kingstonian fans, kicking and heading every ball with the lads.”

“This will be one of the most important games in the club’s history and we want to remember it for the right reasons!”
