As a non-league side Boro famously held Premier League Newcastle to a 1-1 draw in 1999 and also beat the Magpies three seasons ago.

In 2012 they reached the fifth round for the first time and took Tottenham to a replay before going down 3-1 at White Hart Lane.

On Saturday they take on 2008 winners Portsmouth, who are now a division below, and Westley has his sights set on another cup run.

"Everyone loves the FA Cup, it's special," said Westley.

"It's been central to this club's evolution in recent years, we've had some big runs and valuable runs.

"It's up to us to win the match and get through to the second round."

m a big Rafa fan, but when he substitutes Ronaldo after 60 minutes of his first game, which Real draw 1-1, I don't see the Real fans being patient. He'll be gone before October is out.
