HISTON manager Steve Fallon will hope his side can copy AFC Sudbury after this week's FA Cup draw.
The Stutes have been paired against Durham City, the UniBond League First Division North side, in the fourth qualifying round.
And it was AFC Sudbury who thrashed the north-east side 4-0 in an FA Vase clash four seasons ago after being warned of a hostile reception.
Fallon said: "We know what it's like to be the underdogs, and we'll be treating them with a lot of respect as they're having a decent season.
"We've got to make sure that if we do go out of this competition it's to a team higher than us in the pyramid."
Durham's Arnott Stadium has an Astroturf pitch, but FA Cup ties are not allowed on artificial surfaces.

The match is therefore likely to be played five miles away at Eppleton, where Sunderland reserves play their home games.
This weekend sees Histon's biggest league game of the season at the Glassworld Stadium, as current Blue Square leaders Crawley Town visit.
