JOSH Rees insists tonight’s FA Cup clash at Everton is ‘exactly what dreams are made of’.

The former Southend High School pupil, who lives in Leigh, will line up for Boreham Wood at Goodison Park this evening.

And the midfielder cannot wait for the fifth round tie against Premier League opposition.

“I’m really excited about it,” said Rees, 28.

“It’s a landmark occasion for the club and everyone is looking forward to it.

“It sounds like it’s going be a sell out crowd and it really is what dreams are made of.”

And adding to Rees’ excitement will be seeing ex England international Frank Lampard in charge of the hosts.

“Frank Lampard was someone I would watch when I was growing up,” said Rees.

“I’m not a Chelsea fan but he was someone I really admired as a player when I was young.

“Ashley Cole and Duncan Ferguson are there too and then there are the players you’re going to be up against as well.

“They have a host of great internationals and everyone has told me the ground is one of the last really traditional stadiums in the league.”

We can’t wait but we’re not going for a day out.

“We’re going there trying to cause another upset.”

Boreham have been in fine form so far this season and currently sit fourth in the National League standings, with games in hand on all three teams above them.

And Wood have already shown they have what it takes to secure an upset having triumphed 1-0 at Championship high-flyers Bournemouth in the last round.

“We showed what’s possible but tonight will be a tougher test,” said Rees, who has scored 10 goals already this season.

“I know they’re near the relegation zone and they will have an eye on that but I’m sure they will field a strong side.

“Whatever comes our way we will give it our best shot.”

However, promotion remains the main goal this season.

"The league is the main focus," said Rees.

"The FA Cup is a nice distraction and it’s not every day you get to play at Goodsion Park.

"But the main aim is the league and we all know that."
