The assistant manager at The ASM Stadium, Stuart Blaik, reflected on the draw to Sports Shots;

Firstly we would have preferred a home tie!

It’s a tough draw as they are sitting in second place in the Southern Premier League.

We will be going there as the underdogs and not people won’t be expecting us to progress. We love a challenge like that, we will do our homework and go with every intention to give a good account of ourselves and let’s see what happens.
