The FA Cup second round draw will be announced tonight and could prove critical to some of the lower-ranked sides hoping to remain in the competition.
Warrington Town, the underdog of the competition, is one such club that needs a favourable draw in order to progress to the third round when the Premier League and Championship sides enter the contest.
Warrington, a Northern Premier Division One North side, will be number eight in the draw having defeated League 2 club Exeter City 1-0 on Friday.
Worcester City had a successful 90 minutes against Coventry City at the Ricoh Arena at the weekend, winning 2-1 to knock the League One side out of the competition. Worcester fans will need to look out for the number 36 in the draw for their club’s next opponents.
Northern Premier League Premier Division side Blyth Spartans at 39 are another low ranking club hoping to progress to the third round of the competition for what will be only the fourth time in the side’s history.
The draw will take place at the National Football Museum in Manchester with three-time FA Cup winner Martin Keown making the draw alongside West End AFC coach Jason Craven.
