IT is sure to be a memorable afternoon either way for Alvechurch this Saturday when 1400 supporters pack out the away end for their highly anticipated FA Cup first round tie with League One side Cheltenham Town.

Church of the Southern League Premier Central (Step 3 of non-league) go up against the fully professional Football League side in a classic FA Cup clash at Whaddon Road, eager to put the small Worcestershire village firmly on the map.

But Ian Long's side will not be there simply to make up the numbers and by all accounts, Cheltenham will not be taking them lightly.

Team news for Cheltenham 

The Robins are understood to be putting out a strong eleven for the clash but are missing a couple of key players, including top goalscorer Alfie May, and defenders Grant Horton and Will Ferry.

Their in-form on-loan Southampton striker Dan Nlundulu is a doubt for the clash having missed the last couple of weeks through injury.

Other loanees Luke Southwood (goalkeeper from Reading), Caleb Taylor (defender from West Brom), James Taylor (defender from Bristol City) and Taylor Perry (midfielder from Wolves) have all been cleared to play.

Cheltenham usually play a 3-5-2 but recently it's been a bit more like a 3-4-2-1 formation.

Chance of an upset?

The ingredients are there for the mother of all cup upsets tomorrow afternoon but of course, Alvechurch would have to catch The Robins on a very off day.

Cheltenham are struggling in League One, sitting in 19th with just five wins from 16 games and have only scored 13 goals.

So they are hardly firing on all cylinders it's fair to say, but Church most certainly are.

Long's men are 19th in the Southern League Premier but have played a number of games less than everyone else due to their cup run and performance in the FA Trophy. 

In fact, in the last 10 games, Church have lost just once and have scored 20 goals in the process. 

So they will be confident of causing Cheltenham problems, and well, who knows what might happen on the day!
