Away to Stalybridge Celtic, currently bottom of the NPL Premier Division. Prize money of £4,500 up for grabs. Any thoughts ?

This has come round already, it promises to be a great away trip and should be a straightforward win. I would love to see us make the first round, I bet a lot of our fans can't remember the last time we did and a fair few weren't even born.

Careful Mark "a straightforward win" that's dangerous talk!

I know I agree Andrew! Liam Dickenson has 4 goals in 3 games and that sod cost us promotion in the final against guiseley. Cofie will want to prove a point. Let's go there attacking and aim to score 4! That was those two can their goals and we will still win.

A great result today, a win against lower opposition is NEVER a forgone conclusion, as Blyth Spartans and Darlington discovered today, both teams were at home as well!
I have a feeling that we may make the first round proper this season. So long as the draw is kind to us!

Would Argyle away be considered kind?

Solid performance, played some good football in patches here and there, pleasing to see all 3 strikers find the target. Thought Haughton once again showed his class, he has such quick feet. Let's hope for a good home draw.

A workmanlike performance for sure but not one to really excite the travelling faithful. I think Matt was right to suggest that the players weren't firing on all cylinders. Perhaps the trek to Blyth in midweek was still in the system somewhere. I continue to be baffled by the under-use (non-use?) of Matty Hughes. Stalybridge for all their limitations - and defensively they were repeatedly error-prone - at least tried to get the ball out wide and our squad has the perfect wide-man in waiting ready to slice open opposing defences. At Fylde out wide he was often a nightmare to contain, creating openings at will. Yesterday was a surely his stage potentially. We played some nice stuff in phases but more often than not aimed to cut through the middle, where the final pass quite often wasn't precise enough to complete the build-up in a congested space. The skipper continues to play with remarkable assurance and dependability and the defence as a whole seems as reliable as ever - even without Scott Leather yesterday. However, Jarvo defensively was off the pace completely when he replaced Blakes and his challenge for the penalty was quite unnecessary, though he was caught out of position by a long crossfield ball, accurately delivered in the direction of...the Stalybridge wide-man! But when all's said and done, we're in the hat for tomorrow's draw, which is really all that matters. We need to avoid a trip to South Shields.

Yes, of course. Most kind! :D

Watched Highlights of Darlo v South Shields. Shields looked very quick on the break and could of had 5 or 6. They could pose problems one to avoid I think.

Interesting comment from Darlington manager as he picked through the pieces following the South Shields defeat. He claimed he was short of bodies and did not have sufficient strength or experience on the bench. He added: 'You wouldn't find the Harrogates or the Salfords or the Chorleys with 16- or 17-year-olds on the bench for a match of this importance.' Nice to see that we are viewed as one of the 'big boys'!

Ashton Athletic (away) - didn't know they were still in the Cup as I saw no result for them in the Sunday papers. A very winnable tie and a chance to avenge that Lancs Trophy loss. Didn't Ashton go on to beat Radcliffe in the final?

They won 4-0 against Albion Sports FC -apparently based in Bradford and playing in NCEL premier Division -yesterday -hence not in Sunday papers results.

They did go on to win the Lancs Trophy.

We should have beaten them in that semi-however, they were well organised and had a pretty good keeper. Assuming it's a similar line up, CFC need to be totally focused and professional.

I see their manager is Dougie Pitts, who played a few games for us in defence in his younger days.

Couldn't have asked for a better draw IMO. Only way it could've been better had it have been at home. But I'm sure we'll relish the opportunity to get one over them after last season. Wonder what the press facilities are like?
Last season they played Halifax at home in the 2nd Qual Round and had 479 on which is their record attendance to date. This will definitely be a capacity attendance.

The article can't be found and both teams have tweeted saying a big announcement is due tomorrow regarding the game. I wonder why :?:

Andrew I suspect it's going to live on BBC sport, which will mean a kick off change as they can't broadcast at 3pm on s Saturday. No facts just reading between the lines

I don't think a venue can be changed anymore in this competition.

Perhaps the BBC should pay the viewers to watch some of the stuff they produce
