Oh bugger

From the FA, that's our cup dream over for another year .....

The TV cameras will be at Kings Lynn and Salisbury City as the two non-league clubs take on League One outfits in the shape of Oldham Athletic and Nottingham Forest.

The two 'big boys' were both founder members of the Premiership 14 years ago. Now playing in the third tier of English football, 1991 FA Cup Finalists Forest and 1994 Semi-Finalists Oldham are both going well in the division and looking for promotion.

But first they have tricky away ties in the Second Round of The Cup at the start of December live on TV.

On Friday 1 December, Kings Lynn will welcome Oldham to town. The Southern League table toppers beat Bishop's Stortford on Saturday to set up the match while the Latics saw off Kettering.

That game will be live on Sky Sports at 8pm and could see the first qualifiers for the Third Round and a potential match-up with a Premiership giant.

Two days later on the afternoon of Sunday 3 December, Forest travel to Salisbury City, high-flyers in the Nationwide Conference South.

Salisbury dismissed Fleetwood Town 3-0 at the weekend while the two-time European Cup winners made light work of Salisbury's league rivals Yeading at the City Ground.

But as we all know, The Magic of The Cup could strike at anytime and, with the match going out live on the BBC1 from 1.10pm, fans at home may well bear witness to a giant-killing at the Raymond McEnhill stadium.
