McIntosh, pictured, has previously overseen exits at the final qualifying hurdle at Guiseley and AFC Fylde and is hoping to cause an upset against National League Gateshead and their newly appointed manager, former Newcastle United and Everton star Steve Watson.
Ahead of the 3pm kick-off at Silverlands, he told fans via buxtonadvertiser.co.uk he was hoping to be the first Bucks boss to lead them past the qualifying rounds in 55 years.
"It's a huge task but we just need to be competitive, be at it from the start and enjoy the occasion. We can't make it easy for Gateshead," said McIntosh.
"We're at home and in front of what will hopefully be a big crowd and given our previous two attempts at this stage were away from home, this could be seen as our best ever chance to get to the first round and a potential money-spinner.
"Steve Watson has gone in this week and he'll be familiar with our set-up having been here a couple of times with Macclesfield for pre-season games when he was coach there, so he'll have an idea what to expect and will want to get off to a good start.
"We just have to make sure they know they're in a tough game and the longer we can keep them within reach of a result the more we can unsettle them."
