BURY captain Neil Danns insists the Shakers will not take Saturday’s FA Cup tie against Dover Athletic lightly.

Bury were humbled by non-league opposition last season, with Woking winning 3-0 in a replay at Gigg Lane.

Again the Shakers play a National League side in the first round, with Dover making the long trip north.

Andy Hessenthaler’s men are bottom of non-league’s top flight despite claiming their second league win of the season last Saturday.

“Every team we play it’s the same for us,” said Danns.

“Whether it’s Dover or Fleetwood in the Checkatrade Trophy in the game after that, we go out to win every single game.

“The mentality that the gaffer’s put in this season, there’s no other way to do it.

“It’s 100 per cent every single time, it doesn’t matter what cup it is or if it’s the league.

“We’ll go into the Dover game as if it’s a league game.”

Dover midfielder Kadell Daniel is actually an international team-mate of Danns, who scored a rare brace in Bury’s 4-1 win at Macclesfield last Saturday.

Danns, who qualifies for Guyana through his grandfather, did not make his international debut until March 2015 and won his fifth cap this September. The 35-year-old was rested for Guyana’s next CONCACAF Nations League game in October, when Daniel scored in an 8-0 win over Turks and Caicos.

Guyana now have the chance to qualify for the Gold Cup for the first time and Danns is set to travel for their next Nations League game away to French Guiana on November 20.

“They didn’t need me for the last game but this one’s a big game,” he said.

“If we can win it then we’ll be one game away from the 2019 Gold Cup, which is a major tournament, and for someone of my age it might be the last time I get to participate in an international tournament.”

Danns is still available for Saturday while striker Jordan Archer has returned from his loan at Dover’s National League rivals Maidenhead United.

Callum McFadzean is suspended for Tuesday’s Checkatrade Trophy visit by Fleetwood after being sent off in Bury’s previous group game against Leicester’s Under-21s.
