oreham Wood will be hunting another major FA Cup upset when they travel to meet Everton later today.
As the only non-league side left in the competition, the thought of a quarter-final berth being just 90 minutes away only serves to underline the stunning achievement of Luke Garrard’s side.
While fighting for National League promotion, the Wood have downed Eastleigh, St Albans, AFC Wimbledon and Bournemouth in their dream run so far.
Next up are Everton, who under Frank Lampard know that anything but a comfortable victory will be seen as a failure in front of their own fans.

Lampard will have to make do without the bulk of his January signings as Dele Alli, Anwar El Ghazi and Donny van de Beek are all cup-tied.
The match is expected to come too soon for injured striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin, with the Toffees also missing Yerry Mina, Fabian Delph, Ben Godfrey and Tom Davies.
