Needham Market have been handed arguably the hardest draw of the FA Cup Fourth Qualifying Round - the Marketmen having been chosen to host Skrill Premier leaders Cambridge United.

Mark Morsley’s side booked their place in the draw following Saturday’s 2-1 victory over AFC Sudbury and Morsley had expressed his desire for a tough away test, singling out Luton Town as favoured opponents.

Cambridge, managed by Richard Money, are unbeaten in the league this season with 10 victories and five draws and look good bets to gain a return to the Football League, following eight years away.

Elsewhere, Braintree Town face a long trip to Southern Premier team Weymouth and Heybridge Swifts are away at Boreham Wood.

The tie will be held on the weekend of October 26 and the winners will qualify for the First Round Proper and a chance to be pitted against the likes of Portsmouth, Sheffield United and Wolves.
