Cobblers determined to avoid FA Cup upset

The first round of the FA Cup gets underway this weekend and Northampton Town will be hoping to avoid an upset in their televised clash with Bishop's Stortford on Sunday.

The tie has all the ingredients of a tough afternoon for the Cobblers, with Aidy Boothroyd's side currently sitting at the bottom on League Two and their opponents having already knocked out higher league opposition in the shape of Forest Green last month.

Meanwhile, Biggleswade Town are looking forward to playing in the first round for the first time in their history as they get set to take on Stourbridge, whilst Corby Town will have a female referee in charge of their fixture with Dover Athletic.
