Who: City start their FA Cup trail in Essex this weekend with a trip to Ryman Division One North side Heybridge Swifts. Heybridge progressed to this round after a 4-3 penalty shootout win over Stanway Rovers. The Swifts are managed by former Wimbledon, Colchester and Wycombe player Wayne Bond.
Season so far: Heybridge are currently 14th in Ryman Division One North after a slow start to the season. The Swifts have just three wins to their name from nine games but did beat Thamesmead Town 2-0 last time out.

Last meeting: The sides last met in November 2005 when City won 1-0 at Scraley Road in the Third Qualifying Round of the FA Trophy, Dean Cracknell's 10th minute goal all that separated the sides on that occasion.
Players: Jamie Thurlbourne is back in contention for City following the completion of his suspension but James Fisher still has one game left of his suspension. Drew Roberts is unlikely to feature after injuring himself in the 2-0 win at Weymouth last week, leaving City short on options up front.
