Brentford manager Andy Scott is hoping his side can change his FA Cup fortunes against Walsall on Saturday.The Bees boss saw his side knocked out by non-league Barrow in the second round last season - his first campaign in the competition as a manager. [LNB]And Scott told BBC London 94.9 he didn't have much joy in the competition as a player: "My record's shocking," he admitted. "I was very unfortunate. [LNB]"The year I went to Sheffield United we got to the semi-final, I was cup tied." [LNB]He continued the tale of woe, adding: "We lost that to Sheffield Wednesday. Three years on the trot there we played Manchester United in the third round, so in all fairness it wasn't much of an opportunity to get too far. [LNB]"Generally, probably the third and fourth round is as far as I've got, so it would be nice if we could get to those rounds again." [LNB]Brentford are currently three points above the League One relegation zone, having lost 1-0 at Wycombe on Tuesday night. [LNB]Scott is well aware of the boost a win on Saturday would give to his side - not just financially, but also in the dressing room. [LNB]He added: "Everyone wants to play in the FA Cup, everyone wants to get as far as they can and we're no different. Even last year, we wanted to do well and we went out in difficult circumstances. [LNB]"This year we've got to put our all in and do our best to win on Saturday."
