He said: “I got on well with Bevs when he was here and I learnt a lot from him. It will be nice to see him.”

The game will also see the striker come up against his former team-mate Stuart Beavon, who is set to start alongside Kevin Davies on his first return to Adams Park since leaving for the Lilywhites in summer 2012.

He said: “I could’ve had a couple the other night, but I always think I should get more!”

McClure moved on to six goals for the season and to the top of the scoring charts at the club with a goal in the dramatic 2-2 draw at Portsmouth on Wednesday.

“You grow up as a kid and it’s the biggest competition going. You watch the final with your dad and his mates. It’s a big occasion and it would be nice to have a little run.”

He added: “There’s no reason we should be scared, it’s a one-off game and anything can happen in the FA Cup.

“We’ve done well against the higher teams this season and we’ll take that into Saturday and hopefully get into the next round.”

“I’m looking forward to it,” the 22-year-old told Chairboys Player. “They’re a league above and are doing well in the league so it’ll be a good test for us.

The Blues pushed Championship side Leicester City all the way in the Capital One Cup, knocked Bristol City out of the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy and overcame Crewe Alexandra in the first round of the FA Cup.
