BREWERS OR SALFORD TO PLAY OLDHAM ATHLETIC AWAY IN FA CUP SECOND ROUND

11 November 2019

BURTON Albion or Salford City will play AWAY at Oldham Athletic's Boundary Park in the Second Round of this season's Emirates FA Cup.

The Brewers were held to a 1-1 draw by the Ammies at the weekend, forcing a replay at the Pirelli Stadium, the date of which is to be confirmed.

The winner of that game will play League Two side Oldham Athletic in the Second Round, which is due to be held on the weekend of November 30.

Manager Nigel Clough is ensuring Albion do not take their eye off Salford, and says City will receive more motivation with the prospect of a local derby against Athletic ahead of them.

"It's a similar draw to Salford, it could have been worse and it could have been better, but we've got to beat Salford first," said Clough.

"It will give them an added incentive, to have such a local derby waiting for them, which is something for us to be wary of.

"We know Salford are tough and if we do get past them, we know Oldham will be tough.

"Our supporters will be getting very familiar with the M6 from Stoke to Manchester if we do get through - we've had several trips on that stretch recently!"
