The Hawks have been drawn away to either Tiverton Town or Metropolitan Police in the FA Cup fourth qualifying round.

The two teams replay at Imber Court on Tuesday after drawing their first game 3-3.

Though it is an away tie Lee Bradbury insists it is a good draw.

The Hawks manager said: ‘We have to see it as a winnable tie against teams playing at a lower level even though it is away from home.

‘It is a game we will approach in the right manner.

‘This is the first time we have come into the competition at this stage.

‘They have doubled the prize-money and there is £25,000 at stake.

‘Also in the next round big clubs like Sunderland and Portsmouth come into the draw.

‘It is a great opportunity and a big game for us whoever we play.’

The Hawks are in Portsmouth Senior Cup action against Paulsgrove Reserves at Westleigh Park on Tuesday night (7.45pm).
