Fleetwood head coach Uwe Rosler says his men need to focus on getting the job done at Hereford before they can get excited about the potential return of ex-forward Jamie Vardy and his Leicester side in the FA Cup.
Town drew a mouthwatering home clash against the Premier League winners in the third round draw tonight but they still have to beat non-league side Hereford in a replay if they want to welcome now England forward Vardy back to Highbury.
League One side Town drew 1-1 with the Bulls on Saturday and are set to travel to Peter Beadle's Southern Premier Division side on the week commencing December 11.
Rosler says it is a great incentive for both sides, especially given Vardy's connection to the club and the fact Town have never faced a Premier League side competitively having lost against Championship opposition Blackpool (2012) and a replay clash with Bristol City (2017) in their only two previous appearances in the third round.
Vardy, 30, fired in 31 goals for Fleetwood in their 2011-12 Conference promotion campaign before sealing a switch to then Championship club Leicester.
Five years on and Vardy has numerous England caps under his belt and a Premier League winners medal to his name while Fleetwood have climbed up to the third tier.
But Rosler stressed a need to focus on the first hurdle - beating Hereford, one of four non-league teams left in the prestigious competition, next week at Edgar Street.
Speaking exclusively to the Gazette, he said: "It is a mouth watering tie and a great incentive for both teams.
"Especially for us given our history with the Jamie Vardy link and the fact we have never played a Premier League club (competitively) which is a fantastic
"But first and foremost we have to get past the first hurdle before we think about the second hurdle and Hereford is a big hurdle for us.
"The draw is an incentive for both teams and we need to make sure we are getting the job done."
