Hertfordshire rivals Bishop’s Stortford stand in the way of St Albans City and a place in the first round proper of the FA Cup.
The Isthmian League Premier Division Blues saw off Royston Town 3-0 on Wednesday night in front of a capacity 600-strong crowd and had previously put pay to the hopes of Welwyn Garden City and Brentwood.
Saints have already beaten two step three clubs to reach this stage, although in very different circumstances.
They cruised to a 5-0 success over Southern League Premier Division Hitchin Town in the second qualifying round but needed penalties to see off Northern Premier League Premier Division Mickleover on Tuesday.
The match will take place on Saturday, October 24, with the winners receiving £9,375 and the losers pocketing £3,125.
