Lund: Magpies must give their all

Lund, who made 326 appearances for County between June 1987 and December 1995, is fondly remembered by supporters for scoring the winning goal against Manchester City during the club's famous FA Cup run of 1991.

That year County reached the quarter-finals where their dream of a Wembley appearance was ended by the world-class talent of Paul Gascoigne as eventual winners Tottenham came from behind to win 2-1 at White Hart Lane.

With the current squad making it to the last 32 of the competition for the first time in 16 years, Lund recalled the cup win over Manchester City and advised the players to make the most of the day.

"On that day we just gave it everything - we had no fear," Lund said. "There was nothing to lose as far as we were concerned and that is how Notts should approach the game against Wigan.

"If you are playing against Premier League opposition as a lower-league player the important thing is not to freeze on the day and just give it your best.

"You must make sure you have no regrets at the end of the game and don't come off the pitch after the final whistle thinking that you could have done better or given anything more.

"Notts have played lower-league teams so far in the competition but they are coming up against the big boys now and this is when it really gets exciting, and they have got a chance.

"A lot will depend on Wigan's attitude and the team they put out. If they put a weakened side out, then on the day Notts can definitely cause them problems."
