Norton United manager Scott Dundas says his players have "to believe" ahead of the club's FA Cup first-round debut.

The Evo-Stik South outfit will host Conference side Gateshead on Sunday.

Dundas told BBC Radio Stoke: "We're just attack-minded footballers. I wouldn't know how to defend anyway as I never knew how to defend as a player.

"Attacking and getting on the front foot is what I've brought into the team. Defences don't like that so it's served us quite well up until now."

No dull draws for Dundas
Norton United have scored 13 goals in their last three home league games.
They have already scored 19 goals in this season's FA Cup since their campaign began with a 4-1 Preliminary round win away to nearby Stafford Town on 30 August.

After a 7-4 league victory over Brigg Town on Saturday, Dundas' side currently lie 10th in the Evo-Stik League First Division South - the eighth tier of English football.

By comparison, Sunday's opponents Gateshead lie third in the Conference, three tiers higher than Norton United.

"It's all surreal to be honest," Dundas added. "It's just fantastic for the club that everyone is showing so much interest in this game.

"You've always got to believe. You just never know.

"The romance of the FA Cup has produced some remarkable ties over the years.

"It would be absolutely brilliant if we could add Norton United to that as well."
