An enthralling 3-3 draw at the University Stadium ensured that both sides remained in the hat for the 1st Qualifying Round. Luck was smiling down with a home tie against Midland Premier Walsall Wood the reward for the victors.
Plenty of action in the original game, with the Scholars three times coming from behind to snatch a share of the spoils. A highly contentious injury time strike from yards offside Joe Boachie ensured it would be try again at New Linden. Brody Robertson was sent off in the aftermath and will sit out the replay.
Two goals from captain Alex Flett and another from Jon Oglesby looked to have done enough before the late drama. We will start as strong favourites for the game but, as everyone knows, anything is possible in the FA Cup.
The promising Dylan Parkin (pictured) has started his loan spell with the Club very well and will be keen to keep his first clean sheet. Interesting team selection ahead for the management, with big defender Mark Gray also suspended and a couple of injury concerns.
Support has been superb at the New Linden, so please come down to cheer us into the next round!
