Liverpool's Jamie Carragher is hoping to start at Mansfield on Sunday and expects the non-league side to provide a stern test.
The veteran defender has been used largely as a substitute by boss Brendan Rodgers this season but Carragher is hoping to be involved from the start at Mansfield in the third round of the FA Cup.
Liverpool are the heavy favourites going into the tie but Carragher is well aware that Mansfield could cause his side problems.
The Reds faced Havant and Waterlooville in 2007-08 and twice fell behind before eventually coming out on top, and Carragher insists Liverpool cannot afford to underestimate Mansfield ahead of Sunday's tie.
"I was thinking about Havant and Waterlooville when we were 1-0 down and 2-1 down at Anfield," he told the club's official website. "That shows you how difficult it can be. No matter who you are playing against you can get caught out.
"That game was at Anfield, so this is going to be even more difficult.
"It will be one of the biggest games of their lives on Sunday but it should be for some of the Liverpool players - I always play every game as if I don't know if I'm going to get another.
"I haven't started many games this season and hopefully I'll be starting - players should look at it like that and try to show the manager what they can do."
