Weston-super-Mare make the trip to fellow National League South strugglers St Alban’s City tomorrow afternoon in the fourth and final qualifying round of the FA Cup.

Having defeated Wingate and Finchley, of the Ryman Premier League, 3-1 in the previous round, Ryan Northmore will be hoping the magic of the cup proves the perfect tonic, as his Seagulls side seek a morale-boosting cup run.

Weston’s opponents, St Alban’s City, sit one place and one point above them in National League South, with just nine points from 13 games.

The Saints beat Petersfield Town 1-0 in the previous round and have a poor home record this season, whereas the Seagulls have picked up their only two league triumphs on the road.

The game kicks off at 3pm at Clarence Park, with the winners confirming their place in the first round proper and awaiting a potential tie with clubs from League One.
