Ian Allinson is eager to get one over his old employers when St Albans City take on Boreham Wood in the FA Cup on Saturday.
The Saints host their National League opponents at Clarence Park with a place in the first round proper up for grabs for the winner.
Having managed the Wood on two separate occasions, most recently between 2008-2015, Allinson knows better than most the quality City face.
He hopes filling the role of underdogs will suit his side as they look to advance in football’s oldest club knockout competition.
“They are a very, very good team and it is going to be a tough, tough game. It is a game that I am going to enjoy and relish trying to knock them out of the FA Cup,” Allinson said.
“It is great to go into the game with no pressure on it. If you look back to the Cambridge City game, they were underdogs and we had everything to lose.
“Against Boreham Wood, we are the underdogs and they are a team from the conference who are a very good side.”
