Brackley Town overcame Farnborough at Paddy Power Park on Monday night to set up an FA Cup third qualifying round contest against St Albans City.

Eric Odhiambo scored the only goal of the game as the Saints, of the Vanarama Conference North, knocked out their Conference South opposition.

The match at Clarence Park will be played on October 11.

Last season Brackley reached the second round for the first time in their 123-year history by beating League One visitors Gillingham. They lost 3-2 to Macclesfield Town in the second round.
