PREVIEW | Heanor Town (H)

The Bulls have another cup fixture in store as they look to book their place in the First Qualifying Round of the Emirates FA Cup at the second time of asking.

Matt Chatfield's side were forced to accept a draw in the original tie, as a determined Heanor side more than matched their visitors and ensured the game would end goalless.

The tie kicks off at the Forest Town Arena at 7:45pm.


Last Time Out

Saturday's FA Vase fixture proved to be just as tough, as the Bulls just about managed to edge past lower league opposition Graham Street Prims at the Forest Town Arena in the First Qualifying Round.

Outstanding goalkeeping performances from AFC's Hugo Warhurst and the Prims' Danny Brown ensured the game would remain in the low scoring figures, but top-scorer Ross Duggan was in the right place at the right time to send the Bulls through in the dying seconds.


The Opposition

Heanor, too from a tier below, turned out to be more than a handful for AFC in the initial Preliminary Round tie, and could have been two or three ahead by the half-time interval.

The Bulls will have to be weary of the likes of winger Jon Jebbison and striker Jamie Sleigh who caused more than a few problems for the AFC back line.


Team News

Whilst Saturday's debutants Jack Hague and Ellis Wright are cup-tied, Brett Lucas and Nicky Darker return from injury and are likely to start.

Defenders Ben Potter and Tom Slone remain sidelined.
