You was lucky it wasn't Oxford then!!! We all remember the last time you played them at the Kassam in the FA Cup.

We wouldn't have lost to that tin pot club this time. What division are they in again? Unibond 10th division?

Good draw - good chance of making 3rd round. Unlike Oxford.

If we get past Forest Green in the replay it will be 'game on' I feel! Then again, if we don't you may find the non-league side a little tougher than you think!

Non league sides area always a potential banana skin! Would prefer them as I believe we would have a great chance of getting one of the big guns in round 3.
