Abingdon United manager Richie Bourne is optimistic his team will come away with a positive result in their FA Cup clash against Wantage Town.

Bourne, who spent six years as Wantage Town manager, told BBC Radio Oxford: "I expect us to go there and get a result but I know it's going to be difficult.

"They've got a very good side and a very good manager.

"Every season we're all hoping to get through a round or two because the prize money is so good."

He added: "It makes a massive difference to clubs like ourselves and Wantage."

Wantage Town v Abingdon United will take place at Alfredian Park on Saturday, 3 September at 1500 BST.
