McNamara ready to face his former club

“I had a fantastic five years there as a kid," said the United boss. "I learned so much under some great people.

“Like a lot of clubs, they have suffered from trying to buy success.

“It would be nice to see them back up and having some success – but not at our expense in the Cup.

“First and foremost my feelings about the club go out of the window as we want to win the game,"

"It’s right to view them as a banana skin, purely because they put out Dundee in the last round.

“They might be in League One but they are full-time and have a few players who have just dropped down.

“We have to go about it the right way and take our chances. They are scoring goals in their own league and are full of confidence.

“I’ve watched them a few times and they’ll feel they can cause another upset.

“We have to go about it with the same intensity as we started on Saturday and hopefully kill them off.”
