Head coach Uwe Rosler, who has a history of orchestrating FA Cup upsets, sees no reason why lightning cannot strike twice.

He said: “The importance of that (Hereford win) you can see already; with that sort of income that makes also things happen in the transfer market.

“Going into the Leicester game, I’ve been there before with Brentford; when we played against Chelsea, we took them to Stamford Bridge for a replay.

“I’ve been there with Wigan when we eliminated three Premier League teams as a Championship team.

“There is always hope, always a chance. Everything has to be spot on to go your way.

“For us everything has to fall in place to give ourselves a chance for a replay or for a massive sensation.”
