The last two Kent clubs left in the FA Trophy will both be away to fellow Skrill South sides in the third round.

Dover Athletic face a tough trip to big-spending Eastleigh - just three days before they make exactly the same journey for a league game.

Chris Kinnear's side have already knocked out Bath City, East Thurrock United and Leamington to reach this stage of the competition, with all their wins coming at Crabble.

But away form has been a strong suit for the Whites this season, so they will head to the Silverlake Stadium believing they can reach the quarter-finals.

It's a similar story for Ebbsfleet United, who have been drawn away to Havant & Waterlooville.

Steve Brown's side needed a last-minute Michael Thalassitis goal to win 2-1 at Whitstable Town on Saturday.

But the Fleet are on an eight-match winning streak in all competitions.

Havant & Waterlooville were the visitors to Stonebridge Road on the opening day of the season, a game which finished goalless.

FA Trophy winners in 2008, Ebbsfleet have also beaten Bromley and Gloucester City during this cup run.

The ties will be played over the weekend of January 11.
