Wembley will be three wins away for Ebbsfleet if they can knock out the lowest-ranked side left in the FA Trophy this weekend.
Ryman League Division 1 South minnows Whitstable Town stand between the Fleet and a place in the last 16 of the competition they won in 2008.
This will be the Oystermen’s eighth game of their best-ever Trophy run, which has seen them beat higher-league opposition in the last two rounds.
Fleet boss Steve Brown said: "The pressure is on us. We’re going to their ground, which I’m not familiar with and most of our players won’t be familiar with.
"You have to pay respect to (their form) but if they look at our run, it’s 16 games, 13 wins, one draw and two losses. So, as wary as we are of them, they can’t ignore our record.
“Whitstable are in for a tough game but we will pay the utmost respect to them and the record they’ve got at the moment."
