Mani Dieseruvwe is desperate to help Salford inflict an EFL Cup shock against hometown club Leeds United at Moor Lane on Tuesday (Salford 5/1, Leeds 8/15, draw 10/3 – Match Result) as he predicts a “tasty” clash because of the Manchester United ‘Class of 92’ links.

The Ammies are in the Football League for the first time in their history this season and have started with a victory and defeat in their opening two matches.

Salford have already attracted some criticism from opposing fans because of the way former United stars Gary Neville, Paul Scholes, Phil Neville and Nicky Butt have helped bankroll the club’s rise through the football pyramid, with four promotions in five years.

However, they will be very much the underdogs when Marcelo Bielsa’s Championship promotion-chasers Leeds arrive for their EFL Cup first-round showdown this week.

Dieseruvwe (16/1 To Score A Header – Tuesday Live Match Specials) has his own agenda to win the game given that he was born and raised in Leeds, while he also recognises Salford’s links to United will ensure the visiting fans will be desperate not to become the victims of a giant-killing.

He said: “It’s going to be a very tasty match. I’m definitely looking forward to it, I was born in Leeds and have spent most of my life there.

“I’ve got a couple of mates that support Leeds, so it’ll be nice to play against them and have a catch-up with them afterwards. But we’ve got nothing to lose, we’ll be looking to cause a shock.”
