Hampton and Richmond face a date with destiny as they welcome Torquay United to the Rocket Hospitality Beveree Stadium in their FA Cup Fourth Qualifying Round replay.
Jake Gray and Temi Babalola had seemed to get Hampton into the First Round as their goals gave them a two-goal lead leading into the final 18 minutes at Plainmoor.
However, a Brett McGavin wonder goal followed by Shaun Donnellan's equaliser hauled the National League club back into the tie and forced a replay this evening.
If there needed to be any more motivation for these two clubs, last night's draw provided it as there is the prospect of Paul Warne's Derby County lying in wait for the winner.
Kick-off at the Rocket Hospitality Beveree Stadium is at 7:45pm on Tuesday.
