The Saddlers host Leicester in the FA Cup fourth round on Saturday.
Two stoppage-time goals saw the Black Cats edge to a 2-1 victory in the third round against League One outfit Shrewsbury and set up a visit to Craven Cottage on Saturday. The Cottagers, who are seventh in the top flight, knocked out Hull in the previous round and Mowbray is looking forward to the challenge. "We want to try and do well but we have to put into context that we are playing a team that are one of the form teams in the Premier League at this moment," said Mowbray, whose side are ninth in the Championship.
