WITTON will host lower-ranked opposition at the next stage of the FA Trophy if they defeat FC United of Manchester in a replay on Wednesday.
Albion or the Rebels have been paired with Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Division One South pacesetters Leek Town, a team unbeaten after a dozen league games to date this season.
But first Brian Pritchard’s men must overcome Premier Division rivals FC United following a 2-2 draw at Wincham Park on Saturday.
They meet again in 48 hours at Bury’s Gigg Lane, a pitch on which Witton have lost in each of their past two visits.
The victor will bank £2,700 in prize money, with a further £3,250 on offer as a reward for a win in the second qualifying round, scheduled for Saturday, November 2.
