Drawing Premier League opposition in the Third Round of The FA Cup is a common wish among lower league clubs, but for Cheltenham Town that dream has become a reality for the second season in a row.
The League Two outfit were paired with Tottenham Hotspur this time last season - they succumbed 3-0 to the north London side - and on Monday night they will host David Moyes's high-flying Everton.
This means Cheltenham boss Mark Yates will be provided with another opportunity to test his managerial nous against a top-flight tactician and he has urged his players to make the most of the occasion.
He told TheFA.com: "It's good to pit your wits against top managers and top clubs.
"We know they've got quality whatever they do. They've got Johnny Heitinga who played in a World Cup Final, they've got [Marouane] Fellaini - you could just go on and on about them. Who knows what team will turn up?
"We've just got to go out and enjoy it and make sure we play to the best that we can against really top-class players. But we can't get overawed by it.
"Yes they have good players, but it's 11 against 11, and anything can happen if we have a bit of luck and perform to our maximum."
Given that Everton travel to illustrious football cathedrals such as Old Trafford, the Emirates Stadium and Anfield each season, some have suggested the Merseysiders could be in for a shock when they pitch up at the 7,500-capacity Whaddon Road on Monday.
Yates, however, says this will not be the case.
He mused: "It's a nice tidy little ground - the players might not have the comforts they're used to in the Premier League - but I don't think that'll come into it.
"They do everything thoroughly and properly and I don't think David Moyes will be taking us lightly."
Moyes and his coaching staff could be forgiven for having little knowledge of the League Two side but Yates insists this could not be further from the truth.
He added: "We've got a decent relationship with Everton. We had a player [Luke Garbutt] on loan from them last year. They sent people to watch him on a regular basis. I know people there.
"They've probably had us watched five or six times that I know [of]. They've done everything thoroughly."
