Either Ashington FC or Scarborough Athletic will face a stern test in the next round of the FA Cup following the draw for the second qualifying round which was made on Monday.

The Colliers and the Seadogs fought out a 2-2 draw at Woodhorn Lane on Saturday after the North Yorkshire outfit got back on terms three minutes into stoppage time with a Jimmy Beadle penalty.

The two sides will lock horns again on Tuesday – with the winners travelling to face EvoStik Northern Premier League premier division outfit Curzon Ashton in the next round on September 27.

However, Woodhorn Lane boss Gary Middleton said: “I have heard the draw but I don’t wish to give any reaction or make comment about it.

“What I do know is that my lads face a difficult game against Scarborough in the replay and our focus is on that match.”
