Steve Evans knows fine well that that the TV cameras of the BBC are heading to King's Lynn Town for one reason and one reason only - to witness an FA Cup shock.

Stevenage go to The Walks on Saturday for a 12.45pm kick-off, under the full glare of the BBC and the watching nation.

The winner will reach the promise land of the third round and the Boro boss is steeling his troops for the battle ahead.

He said: "The television cameras [chose their games in] cup competitions either because they are huge clubs or for cup shocks. 

"King’s Lynn got an absolutely superb result at Doncaster [in the last round] after, it has to be said, producing a brilliant performance. 

"As soon as the draw was made I said to the chairman that the TV cameras will go to King’s Lynn and the reason they are is because they see the possibility of a cup upset. 

"We need to guard against that." 

And he has warned both the squad and supporters to pay no attention to their hosts' National League North status.

Evans said: "I watched the whole re-run of that game at Doncaster and the statistics tell you it was fantastic - more possession, lots of shots of goals and they should have won by more. 

"But I have also watched them in league action where they have been very impressive. 

"They have some good players and obviously their chairman is supporting Tommy [Widdrington, manager] with good money for non-league. 

"They are not a National North club by any stretch. They have brilliant support, a good manager and some really good players who are arguably Football League players. 

"It’s got the FA Cup written all over it. A club going really well in non-league playing against a team from League Two who are going really well. 

"I know we have to go there and play very well or we’ll go out of the cup. 

"That’s because the gap is not as significant as it would have been five or six years ago. 

"And I see King’s Lynn as a team who should be in the top eight of the National League with the players Tommy has kept. 

"If he had come in earlier, he would have kept them in the National League and they would now be competing with Wrexham, Notts County and Chesterfield. 

"And if we were playing one of them away, they would be favourites. "That’s how competitive Saturday will be."
