Tamworth's FA Cup adventure last season took them to Hartlepool, Bournemouth and Stoke but they have looked to Portugal and Bury to prepare this time around.
The Lambs, who became giant-killing heroes in reaching the third round proper last term, have signed goalkeeper Jose Manuel Montiero Da Viega and winger Daryl Taylor to make their debuts in tomorrow's fourth qualifying round tie with visitors Harrogate Town.
Da Viega, whose CV includes spells at Benfica and Estrella da Amadora and Spanish side Vallodolid, will replace Matthew Ghent after the former Aston Villa keeper's contract was cancelled for reasons not related to football. Sean Bowles, who started the season as No 1, has joined Hinckley United on loan for three months with a view to a permanent move.
Taylor had been a target for Lambs boss Mark Cooper in the summer but opted to stay in the League with spells at Bournemouth and Bury. But Cooper moved smartly to sign the 21-year-old after he had a trial game with Burton Albion reserves earlier in the week.
Cooper, who has allowed midfielder Graham Ward to join Worcester City on loan, will have to reshuffle his line-up against Nationwide North side Harrogate. Yeovil Town have not granted loanee Bradley Thomas permission to play — though fellow Glover Gavin McAllum can feature — while Adie Smith serves a one-match ban. Strike duo Matty Williams (tonsilitis) and Steve Burton (knee) also face fitness tests.
On-loan striker Iyseden Christie will spearhead Kidderminster Harriers' Cup hopes after manager Mark Yates had to sweat on the availability of his loan signings to face Droylsden at Aggborough.
Christie, who returned to the club from Rochdale, will not only be allowed to play in the Cup but Harriers have agreed a deal to secure him for the rest of the season.
Fellow loanee Craig Nelthorpe, from Doncaster Rovers, can also line-up tomorrow but Plymouth Argyle don't want highly-rated front-runner Reuben Reid cup-tied so he will be absent.
Andy White and Luke Reynolds will be vying to replace the youngster.
Guy Sanders is on standby for his first appearance in six weeks to plug Moor Green's injury-hit defence against Morecambe at Damson Park.
Sanders has been struggling after suffering a shoulder injury in September but Moors have been dealt a double blow ahead of the high-profile home clash with Sammy McIlroy's Conference full-timers after centre-backs Lee Ayres and Andy Penny were crocked last week.
Moors manager Bob Faulkner has already ruled out skipper and defensive lynchpin Lee Collins as he recovers from breraking his nose for the second time in six weeks while Ayres (hamstring) and Penny (dead leg) are rated 50-50 chances of being fit as Moors bid to reach the first round proper for only the third time in their history.
Worcester City can recall striker Mark Danks and defender Chris Smith to face Basingstoke at St George's Lane as they bid to emulate last season's glory run.
City enjoyed a live BBC TV second-round tie with Huddersfield last term and manager Andy Preece hopes such memories will inspire his side.
Danks (three games) and Smith (one) are available after suspensions but Dennis Pearce (groin) is Preece's biggest selection doubt.
