Michael Doyle isn't surprised to see Cambridge United leading the way at the top of the Conference Premier.
United's skipper says experience of U's boss Richard Money will have been instrumental to their success this term.
Speaking ahead of the televised second round clash on Sunday, Doyle commented:
"Cambridge are obviously dangerous. They're leading their division and I know a fair bit about (their Gaffer) Richard Money.
"He wasn't at Coventry when I was there but all of the lads who were spoke about him very highly.
"Likewise mates of mine who played under him at Walsall say he is a very good manager, with plenty of knowledge of the lower leagues.
"He gets his teams organised and, more importantly, winning games on a consistent basis.
"Any team in any division that has only lost once by early December after 20 league games deserve respect and we won't underestimate the threat they will pose."
