Lee Worgan is the last man standing from Maidstone’s FA Cup exploits and fancies another upset.
Stones, in the first round for the fourth season running, go to Cheltenham on Saturday (3pm).
The Robins are 15th in League 2 and captain Worgan, the sole survivor from the United side who shocked Stevenage three years ago, fears no one.
He said: “You’ve got to remember that Cheltenham are a Football League team and they won the National League quite comfortably a couple of years ago.
“But the way our away form’s been this year, I don’t see any reason why we can’t go there and win it.
“Everyone from the outside would see it as an upset but with our belief and our togetherness, we don’t fear anyone.
“You could see against Chester on Saturday, you go 95, 96 minutes and you keep believing you can win the game.
“If you’re showing that sort of belief in league games, when it’s at home and the other team’s making it difficult for you, I don’t see why we can’t go to a Football League club and just go for them.”
Jay Saunders’ side lost to Yeovil at this stage two years ago and were beaten by Rochdale in a replay last season.
The magic of reaching the first round will never wear off for Worgan.
He said: “Without a doubt, the excitement is still the same as the first time.
“The FA Cup always has a little bit of spice to it because you’re a non-league team and you only have to look at Lincoln and Sutton last year.
“They had fantastic runs and it helps your league season.
“Me personally, I love playing in the FA Cup because there is always that potential of having a big draw.
“We always seem to have done well, so we go again.”
Goalkeeper Worgan is the last of the old guard with the likes of Frannie Collin and Steve Watt long gone and Alex Flisher and Tom Mills joining Margate last summer.
He said: “I speak to a lot of the boys - they’re good friends of mine - and they do highlight that I’m the last man standing, clinging on as it were, but it’s a bit of an achievement.
“Every year Jay has to freshen things up because the club’s moving forward so quickly that you have to bring in new faces.
“We always get to the first round, it seems, so hopefully we can kick on and do a bit better.”
