IT is Robins versus Robins in the first qualifying round of the FA Cup, writes Dave Wright.

Bracknell Town's reward for their 5-0 drubbing of Wessex League side Bournemouth on Saturday is a home tie with the club which shares the same nickname, Carshalton Athletic.

The visitors are currently fifth in the Isthmian League's Premier Division, while Town are 10th in the South Central Division.

Binfield, who defeated Lymington Town 3-2 in their preliminary round tie at the weekend, face a tough trip to Harrow Borough, who are fourth in Southern League Premier Division South.

Harrow's management staff includes Reading-born Darron Wilkinson, who was once assistant to Binfield boss Roger Herridge at Wokingham & Emmbrook.

Wilkinson had previously played for the old Wokingham Town club before being sold to Brighton & Hove Albion in 1992.

The Harrow team includes Kensley Maloney, who was one of several players to leave Bracknell during the summer, while Carl Davies and Jamie McClurg switched to Binfield.

The first qualifying round ties will be played on the weekend of September 6-9 with the winners receiving £4,500 and the losers £1,500.

Bracknell followed up their cup win at Bournemouth with a 2-2 draw at Northwood in Monday's Isthmian League fixture.

But some fans were left wondering if the Robins were still thinking about their day on the sunny South Coast as they were badly caught napping by a side which had lost their two opening games and were beaten 1-0 by Hellenic League side Longlevens in the FA Cup 48 hours earlier.

Town conceded two goals in the opening 11 minutes, only to hit back through Nathan Minhas and Dan Carr.

Manager Sam Lock admitted Northwood took their first goal well, but the second was down to poor defending.

"It was not good enough," he said.

"Conceding those two goals made it an uphill battle for us, but for the rest of the game, we performed really well.

"We forced a lot of corners and had many shots blocked in their box – we could not have put any more pressure on them than we did.

"We dominated the game, so it was two points dropped."
