Wealdstone manager Dean Brennan is expecting a tough test in the last 16 of the FA Trophy but is viewing the clash as a great opportunity to progress.
The Stones will welcome National League North side Gloucester City to Grosvenor Vale on Saturday as they look to put a 3-1 league defeat to Hartlepool United behind them.
“We want to win, I always say you need luck in the cup, I say that all the time as you need the breaks,” Brennan said.
“We had a lot of luck in the last round, we earned that luck as we were 3-0 down at half-time, and I think this one is a 50/50 game to be honest with you.
“Gloucester are full-time, very ambitious and just moved into a new stadium, and financially they’re well backed. They’ve probably got four times the budget we have.

“It’s going to be a different game, we watched them when they played Maldon & Tiptree down at Aveley, and we’ve scouted them as well.
“They’re a good side, I know they’ve lost Liam Daly their captain to Barnet in a big transfer, but we’re not counting on our laurels.
