Bury manager Alan Knill has urged his team to rediscover their form in this weekend's FA Cup clash against Gillingham.

The Shakers have lost four of their last five games - including a Johnstone's Paint Trophy exit at the hands of Darlington in midweek - but Knill insists that will all be eclipsed by the magic of the FA Cup.

"We are looking forward to the FA Cup. We have come through a tough October and started November really well with a great win away at Notts County, so I think we go into the game pretty strong.

"The whole atmosphere in FA Cup games is good. I have played non-league teams in the past, which are always hard, and I have played league teams.

"The tradition of the cup is fantastic. It's a chance for smaller teams to do something. Last year we saw Barnsley virtually go all the way, and that can be an inspiration to us.

"We will be going all out, and hopefully we will pull a plum tie along the way and make some money."
