Dover Athletic boss Chris Kinnear happy to avoid Conference big guns in FA Cup draw
Dover boss Chris Kinnear says he's pleased with the club's FA Cup Fourth Qualifying Round home draw against Oxford City, avoiding former league sides like Luton and Cambridge United.
Skrill North strugglers City – who sit next to bottom with one win in 10 games – will visit Crabble on Saturday week, October 26, with a place in the first round proper at stake.
Despite their league struggles, City beat Skrill South leaders Eastleigh 3-2 on the road on Saturday having beaten mid-table Maidenhead 1-0 in the previous round.
Kinnear said: “They have beaten two good sides in our league already, so we know we can’t afford to take them lightly.
“We want to get as far as we possibly can in the competition and be playing against League clubs."
