National League North leaders AFC Fylde scent an FA Cup upset when they travel to face 2004 finalists Millwall in the first round at the New Den on Saturday.

Dave Challinor's men go into the game on the back of a run of nine consecutive wins in all competitions and unfazed by the prospect of adding an illustrious chapter to the club's short history.

Fylde also reached the first round last season where they were beaten by Plymouth and defender Josh Langley told the club's official website: "I think this one at Millwall is even bigger.

"They are a league above and the standard of their players will be higher. Having said that, it could work in our favour. We go there as underdogs and the pressure is on them to beat us."
