Rob Edwards believes making it to the first round proper of the FA Cup would lure disenchanted AFC Telford United fans back through the turnstiles.

Victory over FC United of Manchester at the New Bucks Head tomorrow would put them in the hat for a potential clash with a Football League side.

The Bucks’ biggest home crowd so far this term is the 1,335 that watched the 2-0 loss to Salford City on August 12.

“I am looking forward to the game and it is a great opportunity to get through to the proper rounds,” said Edwards.

“It would be great to bring some fans back and we have to do our part.

“Telford have had an indifferent time over the last few years and we may have lost a few fans along the way.

“It’s up to us to bring those people back. We can’t control what the gate is of course, but we can control how we perform.”
