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."

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
