Dereham Town hope to follow up their impressive 4-2 league win against Coggeshall a week ago with FA Cup success.
The Magpies travel to face Evo-Stik South Division One side Bedford Town in the preliminary round of the world's oldest knockout competition – with the chance to win £2900.
Bedford are also in decent form– they enjoyed a 3-0 midweek home league win over Yaxley and Dereham boss Neal Simmons knows his side face a difficult task.
'Bedford is going to prove to be a tough fixture,' he said.
'They have started the season very well and are a team packed with experience at a higher level than the one they currently play at.
