Hertfordshire rivals Boreham Wood stand in the way of St Albans City and a fourth appearance in the FA Cup first round proper in the last five years.

Saints will host the Vanarama National League side in the fourth qualifying round, made this lunchtime live on Talksport by Hertfordshire’s own Tony Incenzo.

That will take place on Saturday, October 14.

Boreham Wood and Saints have a long history together and are the former club of current City boss, Ian Allinson.

City have been at home in the last two rounds with a 2-1 victory over Bridport on Saturday getting them to this stage.

Another victory could see them paired with the likes of Carlisle United and Mansfield Town, both of whom have visited Clarence Park in previous first round appearances.
