STEFAN Brown is hoping to emulate his Emirates FA Cup first round feat of eight years ago should he get the nod to lead the Oxford City attack tomorrow afternoon.

The striker is relishing the chance to again make a name for himself when Solihull Moors visit Court Place Farm.

Brown was nominated as the player of the round when he came off the bench as a 21-year-old student to score a FA Cup record hat-trick in just 15 minutes when his former club AFC Totton knocked out Bradford Park Avenue in November 2011.

The 29-year-old, who joined City from Wealdstone at the start of the season, has seen most of his campaign blighted by injury.

But after scoring twice in last week’s thrilling 4-4 draw at Tonbridge Angels, Brown is hoping his luck has turned.

“It’s been a tough season for me so far, but to be back in time to play in this big game is brilliant,” he said.

“I can’t wait to get going.

“As a striker, scoring goals is the main part of your game, and so to get two goals last week after being out injured is brilliant.

“Hopefully I can take that form into Saturday.”

At this stage last season, striker Kabby Tshimanga scored a memorable treble for City as they took Tranmere Rovers to a replay with a 3-3 draw at Prenton Park.

Brown says he hopes to emulate that when he leads the line for his new club.

Remembering his exploits for AFC Totton, Brown said: “It was great fun. We got to play live on TV in the second round, but in the first round, I was actually a bit annoyed, because I was on the bench.

He added: “It went from being an annoying day, not being in the starting line-up, to being one of the best days of my life.”

He added: “Hopefully I can do something like Kabby did for Oxford City last season, because it really puts you in the limelight, and we’ve got nothing to lose.

“Solihull isn’t the glamour tie we could have hoped for, it’s going to be a tough game, they’re doing really well in the league above.

“If you look at our league position and theirs, it should be an easy game for them.

“But we are going to give it everything and give ourselves a chance of making the second round.”
