Region’s teams all drawn at home in FA Cup

LEISTON will host a mouthwatering FA Cup First Round match against Port Vale if they beat Dartford in Tuesday night’s replay.

One of the lowest rank sides left in the competition booked their place in today’s hat after a goalless draw against their Kent opponents at Victory Road.

While overcoming a Dartford side ranked three leagues above them will be a difficult task in itself, the prospect of facing a side currently second in the Npower League Two table will certainly give both teams extra incentive in the replay.

And there was further good news for the region’s sides who were all given home ties in today’s draw.

Colchester United will host League Two strugglers Bradford City while Chelmsford City have a great chance of reaching the Second Round if they can get past Carshalton Athletic in tomorrow night’s home replay.

If successful, they will host the winners of Hendon or Metropolitan Police, both in lower leagues than City.

Cambridge United have also been blessed with a home tie - and a cracking one at that - against League One promotion hopefuls Huddesfield Town.
