Harry Redknapp believes we've 'as good a chance as anyone' in this season's FA Cup.

Harry Redknapp believes we've 'as good a chance as anyone' in this season's FA Cup.

We kick-off with a third round tie at home against Cheltenham on Saturday.

"We’re in two competitions and we’ve got to have a real go," said Harry.

"I think we’ve got as good a chance as anyone and it’s a competition we want to do well in.

"We want to make sure we get through but it won’t be easy.

"Mark Yates has done a great job at Cheltenham, they are right at the top of the division and we don’t underestimate them at all.

"We won’t be taking liberties with the game but I do need to make changes.

"That’s no disrespect to Cheltenham, but I need to play the squad. We played the same group of players over the holiday period and I need to give the other lads a game.

"The team that plays will be full of international players. We’ve got Michael Dawson, Bassong, Danny Rose, Pienaar, Kranjcar, Aaron coming back, Pavlyuchenko, dos Santos – all international players."

The Robins are flying high in League Two and are currently on a nine-match unbeaten run.

"Cheltenham are playing well," added Harry. "We’ve had them watched two or three times and the reports are all good. It will be a difficult game.

"If we’re not spot on, we’ll find ourselves in trouble.

"I know what can happen in these games and we have to make sure we’re up for it and ready. The lads have to have the right attitude and do the job."
