Lowestoft Town land Salisbury tie in FA Trophy

Lowestoft Town director of football Craig Fleming admitted the Blues have been handed a difficult draw in the FA Trophy first round proper after landing an away trip to Salisbury City on Saturday, December 10.

Jamie Forshaw came off the bench to bag a brace at Harlow on Saturday to inspire the Trawlerboys to a 2-1 win and they will be on the road again next month in the competition against the Blue Square South side.

'It's a difficult draw – we would have obviously preferred to be at home,' said Fleming. 'Both sides would have probably preferred different draw but that's how it is. But it's a game that I think both sides will think they have a chance of winning.

'We are in a terrific run of form and if we can carry that on then they are going to be in for a tough game.'
