Bristol Rovers will welcome National League outfit Boreham Wood to the Memorial Stadium in round two of the Emirates FA Cup. The Hertfordshire-based side beat Eastleigh to reach this round whilst the Gas overcame Rochdale at the Me with Scott Sinclair scoring the winner.
Boreham Wood are managed by Luke Garrard and were giant killers last season as they dumped out then Championship promotion-chasing side Bournemouth out of the Cup. They are currently seventh in the National League standings.The tie is due to be played on the fourth week of November, between Friday, November 25, and Monday, November 28. The England national team play their second World Cup match against the United States on November 25, which likely rules out any television fixture.
The second-round draw included teams who were victorious from the first-round ties, mainly made up of League One and League Two clubs. There were 19 teams from the non-league that were involved.The draw took place on Monday evening at Wrexham’s Racecourse Ground. The Welsh side - owned by Deadpool actor Ryan Reynolds - overcome Oldham Athletic on Sunday.
King’s Lynn Town, managed by former Bristol Rovers director of football Tommy Widdrington have a home tie against Steve Evans’ Stevenage. Chippenham Town, who have Pablo Martinez and Tom Mehew in their ranks, will travel to Burton Albion.
