Rotherham United’s Kevin Ellison knows all about non-league football having spent some time playing for Southport and Conwy United. He says he knows that the FA Cup will be very important to Wealdstone but it’s going to be just as important for him too, as he’s never got past the first round before.

Speaking to MillersWorld, the thirty year old said, ‘I played non-league football before turning professional so I know what to expect at places like Wealdstone. It’s going to be a physical game and we have to show them some respect, go in the right frame of mind and get a win. The pressure is on us and we won’t be taking them lightly.

‘I had four or five years playing non-league before I turned pro at twenty-one and I know how tough it is down there. Looking forward to the FA Cup is a big big thing for non-league teams. We all want to reach the third round. They won’t give us an easy game.’
