CHELMSFORD City or Crawley Town could face the most difficult possible home tie in this season's FA Trophy if they advance to round three where the winners of another outstanding tie, Oxford United vs Woking, await in the last 16 for the victors of next week's rearranged Second Round clash at Melbourne Stadium.

CHELMSFORD City or Crawley Town could face the most difficult possible home tie in this season's FA Trophy if they advance to round three where the winners of another outstanding tie, Oxford United vs Woking, await in the last 16 for the victors of next week's rearranged Second Round clash at Melbourne Stadium.

The draw at Wembley Stadium potentially drew Glenn Pennyfather's team against Blue Square Premier promotion favourites Oxford or Conference South challengers Woking on Saturday 30th January, with a further £7,000 at stake in addition to £6,000 worth of Second Round winnings. All four teams face rearranged games before they progress, with Oxford vs Woking scheduled for this Tuesday night.

Oxford are sitting pretty in second place in their division, with three games in hand to make-up a single point deficit behind leaders Stevenage Borough in their ultimate quest to regain a place in the Football League. Their strike force includes 17-goal James Constable and recent results suggest Chris Wilder's men would provide the toughest test imaginable to Pennyfather's men if they emerge past another severe test in Crawley.

Meanwhile, the Clarets would need little introduction to Woking, having played them twice already this season and seen two midfielders move to Kingfield in Sam Sloma and Jamie Hand. The Cards are in a similar position near the top of the Blue Square South and they could also prove to be a major stumbling block ahead of the progress of City or Crawley, who meet themselves on Monday 18th January at 7:45pm.
