TYLER FRENCH doesn't fear Harrogate Town and the defender believes Wrexham are more than capable of pulling off an FA Cup shock.

Phil Parkinson's side have had an indifferentstart to the National League season but tomorrow turn their attention to the famous cup competition where they come up against a Harrogate side who ply their trade one division higher than the Reds.

Simon Weaver's side are among the League Two pacesetters with the Sulphurites currently seventh in the standings following a tricky spell which has seen them take one point from their last four outings.

Harrogate are still favourites heading into the first round showdown at Wetherby Road but French prefers to focus on Wrexham rather than worry about their opponents.

"It would be nice to take the tension away from the league and hopefully go on a nice little cup run," said French.

"All the focus is on Saturday and preparing for Harrogate.

"They will be the favourites but we are more than capable of going there and beating them, we have got the players.

"All the focus is on us and how we are going to try and beat them.

"We are not worried about them, it is all about us."

French believes there is no pressure on Wrexham because Harrogate are favourites to reach round two.

"The pressure is on them because they are expected to win," said French.

"But we are going there to hopefully win the game and progress into the next round.

"I have never been on a cup run so that is something I would love to be part of.

"The FA Cup is a massive competition, especially for a club like Wrexham, and we want to go as far as possible."

French will be hoping to continue his run in the side at right-back but he faces competition for a starting place.

Bryce Hosannah, who has played in a more advanced position during the last three games, is a recognised full-back along with Reece Hall-Johnson who made his comeback from a groin problem sustained in the opening day draw at Solihull Moors by playing in Tuesday's in-house practice match.

The Harrogate clash could come too soon for Hall-Johnson but French is happy with his own form.

"There is a lot of competition there," said French.

"We all want to play and we are all good players.

"We all push each other every day in training but I have just got to keep doing what I am doing.

"At the end of the day, it is the gaffer's decision who he plays but I think I am doing alright at the minute so I can only do what I can do."

French still considers centre-back to be his preferred position despite performing well on the right.

"My favourite position is centre-back but I have always said I will play anywhere to help the team," added French.

"I have grown as a right-back and I am getting a lot more comfortable in the position every time I play.

"I am still adapting to it but enjoying playing there."
