    I also expect the demand for tickets will be strong, we will presumably get the same 800 standing tickets as we did for the league game, no seats due to separation issues.

    Priority system, one per customer, I imagine.

    Waterproofs inc overtrousers needed! if it's not raining it will be b. cold on top of that hill...

    They were terrible against us at home in the league, from the very first minute, worst performance I've seen on the live stream all season. I think one of their centre-backs was out injured and they just looked a league below us. Since then they've recently beaten Coventry and Stevenage away and Morecambe at home, three wins in their last three games. So God knows what to expect.

    Considering recent form you'd have to say FG are the favorites. But it is winnable/ drawable. Getting into the 3rd round could be an excellent unbudgeted bonus.

    Well they're 2 points up on us in the last 6 games form. They have found their feet after a pretty torrid start to their newly acquired league status. They will not be a push over by any means. Tough game. I'd take the draw now if offered.

    Pretty sure that it was - that dire 0-0 draw at the old Lawn in November 2002.
