Malpas taking Histon seriously

Published Add your comment

Manager Maurice Malpas insists Swindon will not underestimate Histon as they look to avoid being on the wrong end of an FA Cup giantkilling.

The Robins travel to the high-flying Blue Square Premier side looking to book their place in the second round for the fourth time in the last five years but Malpas knows they will have to play at their best to avoid becoming headline news for all the wrong reasons.

"It is a game we are taking very seriously," he said on the club's official website.

"We know all about them having had them watched last weekend and I went to see them against Hinkley earlier in the week. It will be a physical encounter but the players know what is waiting for them.

"The FA Cup could be an important competition for Swindon - not just financially but getting to the latter rounds could attract the national media for the right reasons.

"I get a buzz from the cup competitions and hopefully our supporters do as well. However, the one thing we don't want to do is go to Histon and lose the game. Hopefully we can get the job done at the first time of asking."
