MANSFIELD Town will have to wait until Tuesday to find out who they will play in the First Round of the FA Cup. Sunday lunchtime’s televised draw pitted them against minnows Slough Town or Gosport Borough, but the two sides then played out a goalless draw on Sunday afternoon. Gosport, of the Evostick Southern League Premier Division, will host the replay against Slough, from a division below them.

Gosport, who hammered Slough 4-0 in the FA Trophy earlier this season, have never reached the First Round before.

The First Round tie is due to be played on Saturday 3rd November, unless it is switched for television.
