GREEN-KEEPER Gareth Risbridger is just 90 minutes away from a possible dream meeting with his Manchester United heroes in the third round of the FA Cup.

The 26-year-old, who will be up at 6.30am today to rake the bunkers at Wycombe Heights Golf Club as usual, will tomorrow be turning out for Ryman League Staines as they bid to join United, Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal in the third round draw.

Risbridger was part of the Staines Town side that produced the shock of the competition so far knocking Stockport County out in a penalty shootout.

Now he plans to give League Two big-boys Peterborough United the same treatment in tomorrow's sold-out second round clash at Staines.

The midfielder from Marlow said: "Beating Stockport was the most amazing experience. It was sheer excitement, you just can't describe it and we want more of it."

He helped the Ryman League minnows earn a 1-1 draw at Stockport to earn the never-to-be-forgotten replay where they finished the job live on television.

And Risbridger, who has overcome six career-saving operations after having his knee ripped apart by a bladed boot three years ago, was very nearly Staines' hero in that replay at Wheatsheaf Park.

He hit the bar with an effort and should have been awarded a penalty in extra time with the score locked at 1-1.

He said: "It was the most blatant penalty I've ever seen. I couldn't believe it wasn't given. Their player almost pulled the shirt off my back."

But Staines held their nerve to win the penalty shootout 4-3 - with former Wycombe Wanderer Lewis Cook among the scorers - to secure the biggest win in their history.

Now after beating League Two Stockport, and overturning Woking in the round before they don't want their dream to stop.

Manchester United fan Risbridger said: "We're 90 minutes away from being in the third round draw alongside the Premiership clubs. That's a massive prize. It's as big as it gets.

"If we win this game we could be playing Manchester United and even Premiership players dream of playing at Old Trafford.

"We've got to believe we can do it and I think we can because we've got lads in our team who should be in the pro game."

But they won't have it easy. Peterborough are in the League Two play-off zone and beat Brentford 7-0 last week.

Highlights will be shown on Match of the Day tomorrow.
