Cambridge City host St Neots tomorrow night under the Westwood Road lights in the first qualifying round of the Emirates FA Cup.

Friday night FA Cup football is a happy hunting ground for City as the Lilywhites produced a fine performance to knock out Stamford AFC a fortnight ago.

With St Neots being a division higher, it's the first time they have appeared in the competition this season and manager Matt Clements will be looking for his team to record what would be their first win of the season if they progressed to the next round.

Two consecutive defeats over the bank holiday weekend against Hereford and Kettering respectively has seen the Saints slip into the bottom four of the Premier Division table.

City meanwhile will be looking to build on the 4-1 victory at Bedford on Monday and will be hoping that home advantage will swing the tie in their favour.

Boss Robbie Nightingale has injury concerns over Ollie Snaith after he missed the game at Bedford.  Meanwhile striker, and former Saints player, Lewis Wilson came through the match unscathed after suffering a facial injury in the match against Stamford.  So he should be fit to line-up against his former club.

City and St Neots were embroilled in a relegation battle last year and fans of the Lilywhites will not need reminding that it was the Saints who eventually pulled clear whilst City lost their Premier Division status on the final day of the season.

A reminder for anyone attending the game that as it is an FA competition no alcohol will be allowed to be consumed inside the stadium.  Kick-off on Friday evening at Westwood Road is at 7:45pm.
