Reflecting on the draw Manager Andy Peaks said; "Although we would have preferred to have had a home game, it's a game we will look forward to. "They are from the league above, and although perhaps they are struggling a bit at the moment, it will be a tough game. "If we equip ourselves in the same way as we did against Boston and Leamington, then it is one we will fancy ourselves in. "It will be a good distraction from the league and it will be a great achievement for the club if we can make it through to the last 16 of the competition."
