FA Cup preview: Huddersfield Town v Dover Athletic

Kevin Kilbane says Huddersfield Town are determined to dispose of non-league minnows Dover Athletic at the first time of asking – with a midweek cup replay in Kent the last thing they want.

Town will be seeking to book a place in the fourth round of the FA Cup for only the second time in 13 years at the expense of the Whites, who have already performed giant-killing acts against near-neighbours Gillingham and Aldershot Town.

Lee Clark's troops are big favourites going into the tie, but Kilbane says Town aren't taking their Blue Square South rivals lightly, with lessons of their first-round experiences against Cambridge United, who came within minutes of a stunning replay shock at the Galpharm only for two last-gasp goals to break their hearts, firmly in their minds.

And while some Town fans are already eyeing landing a glamour tie in round four, the players aren't getting carried away.

Kilbane who joined Town on loan from Hull City on January 1 said: "We've got a lot of games this month and we certainly don't want to be having another.

"But we definitely won't take anything for granted and we know they have got nothing to lose and they will try and relax and play to their strengths.

"So it will be a difficult game. But if we play as well as we are capable, we can win it at the Galpharm. I have lost to teams from lower divisions and had a few upsets and I don't want to be on the wrong end of any more of those defeats."

Loan striker Benik Afobe is a slight doubt for Town with a knee injury.
