Boston United boss Adam Murray has warned his players of the dangers of facing lower-league opposition in the FA Cup.

The Pilgrims host Midland Football League Haughmond in the second qualifying round on Saturday.

Murray says players from the Shrewsbury-based Step Five outfit will lift their game as they target an upset.

“In any cup competition, when you are drawn against lower league opposition at home, expectations rise and the opposition take on the underdog tag,” said Murray.

“That immediately brings its own dangers because teams can use that to their advantage. We’ve seen it so many times in the past.

“We are certainly in for a tough game because those players will come here to a bigger ground in front of a bigger crowd and it will be a massive game for them.

“They will undoubtedly all lift their game and it will be a dangerous occasion for us.”
