The Seagulls will travel to Park View Road on November 25 for a 3pm kick off.

The sides last met on October 14, when the Wings left the Woodspring Stadium with a 2-0 victory.

The London-based side sit in fourth place in the table, six points clear of 13th-placed Weston.

But Marc McGregor will be confident his side can avenge the league defeat after stringing together three consecutive wins.

He said: “Perhaps we could have had a kinder draw, but it is what it is. If we want to win this trophy then you have to play those you are presented with, and you have to beat the good sides on your way.”
