ST Albans City must find the goal touch on Tuesday or face the prospect of crashing out of the FA Cup at the first hurdle.

City have now scored just one goal in five matches, having failed to put any past a resilient Harlow Town outfit at Clarence Park last Saturday.

The Ryman League side thwarted any attempts City had and will now fancy their chances of causing an upset at home in the replay. City have not scored from open play since Tuesday, September 2 when James Quilter opened the scoring against Bishop's Stortford. Midfielder Jonathan Hunt struck the only goal at Newport County from the penalty spot but City have been shut out four times in their last five matches.

Manager Steve Castle went with Lee Clarke and Paul Hakim to lead his attack on Saturday but could look to Simon Martin or Gary Cohen to add something extra at Harlow.

Midfielder Luke Thurlbourne got through 90 minutes on Saturday for City as he replaced the previously ever-present Ben Bowditch.
