Simon Grayson Won't Be Underestimating Non-League Havant

7 November 2014

Preston North End manager Simon Grayson tells PNE Player that he won't be underestimating non-league side Havant and Waterlooville when the two sides clash in the FA Cup on Monday.

There is a welcome six day break between games for the Lilywhites and given the grueling schedule of late, it's something that the gaffer feels could be an advantage but insists his side will need to work hard to get the win and ensure they aren't on the wrong side of a cup upset.

"Our preparation will be second to none, we fly down on the Monday morning, to the hotel and then get prepared for the game.

"We will certainly not be underestimating them, because everybody is looking for an upset in the cup and every time I've been involved in a cup match against teams in lower divisions, you stress to your players that you don't want to be the team that's on the end of an upset.

"We will certainly be prepared as well as we can be, it's ideal that the game is a Monday night game given the schedule that we have had so, Sunday would have been ideal for the supporters I suppose and we could have coped with that but we move on and we get ready for it."
