Paul Doswell's men, who defeated Southern League Premier South side Beaconsfield 5-3 in the previous round on Saturday, are two wins away from making into the first round proper for the second season running.

Last term, Hawks were stunned by lowly Marine and missed out on a massive third round meeting with Premier League Tottenham Hotspur.

But the Westleigh Park outfit will be looking to progress in this season's competition against struggling Billericay.
