FA Cup draw FA Cup draw

Boston Town will be away to Kirby Muxloe in the next round of the FA Cup - if they can beat Leicester Nirvana in tonight's replay.

The clubs meet again after a goalless draw at the DWB Stadium on Saturday, with the winners taking their place in the First Qualifying Round on Saturday 7 September.

It could potentially be a big opportunity for Gary Edgley's side to progress to the Second Qualifying Round stage, when many big guns including Boston United enter the competition. Kirby Muxloe finished second from bottom of the United Counties League Premier Division last season and were relegated to Division One of the Midland League.

But it would also mean yet another away trip for the Poachers, who have had a string of away cup draws recently, including all six knockout games they played last season.

Significant prize money is at stake in the FA Cup - tonight's winners will collect £2,890 and there's £4,500 up for grabs for First Round Qualifying Round winners.
