FA Cup: Sporting Khalsa get ready for their date with FC United

BBC Midlands Today meets non-league minnows Sporting Khalsa as they prepare for Saturday's FA Cup fourth qualifying round date with FC United of Manchester.

The Willenhall-based Midland League club, from English football's ninth tier, are the lowest-ranked side left in the competition.

They now find themselves up against a team from three levels higher in National League North, and FC United, although formed only 10 years ago - 14 years after Khalsa first saw the light of day in 1991 - are watched by average crowds vastly in excess of what they attract at Noose Lane.

Khalsa were given use of neighbours Wolves' Compton Park training ground for Thursday night's final training session, but Ian Winter went along to meet manager Ian Rowe and his players two nights earlier as they warmed up for Saturday's game at the Aspray Arena with a league game at Brocton.
