Richard Money says Cambridge United will be ready to fit their billing as favourites to win The FA Trophy this weekend.

Conference Premier high-fliers Cambridge head to Wembley on Sunday, where they will take on Gosport Borough.

And they are hot favourites to win under the Arch against their Conference South opponents, who Money is not under-estimating.

"There's not a cat in hell's chance of us getting complacent," he told TheFA.com.

"That's just the sort of group that we are.

"People will label it in the way that they want in terms of the status of the two teams.

"But it's a 50-50 game and the history books are full of occasions when the underdog wins."

A crowd of around 20,000 is expected at Wembley for the game and Money expects there to be a decent atmosphere under the Arch.

And the match comes as a welcome distraction from the Conference campaign for Cambridge, who are currently in second spot chasing runaway leaders Luton Town.

"It's a big occasion and it's one that we're really looking forward to," added the former Walsall boss.

"It's a day when we hope we can come out as winners."
