It certainly wasn’t the draw Banbury United boss Mike Ford would have wanted.

The Puritans will travel to Wealdstone in the third round of the Emirates FA Cup following Monday’s draw.

After comfortably seeing off fellow Evo-Stik Southern League outfit Cirencester Town on Saturday, United now face a tricky trip to the Vanarama National League South side.

It will be United’s third away draw on the spin and by far their toughest as Weldstone sit just outside the play-off positions. The tie will take place on Saturday, October 1 which means the premier division game at St Neots Town will have to be rearranged.

And Brackley Town will also be on the road in the next round.

They will travel to Worcester City or AFC Telford United who must replay on Tuesday night following Saturday’s draw.
