Hampton and Richmond Borough can get one win away from the FA Cup first round proper if they defeat Paulton Rovers at the Rocket Hospitality Beveree Stadium. 

Gary McCann was happy with how his team dealt with adversity in their mid-week win over Hungerford Town in National League South and will look to take that into a more favourable match-up this weekend. 

In the previous round of the FA Cup Hampton took a comfortable 2-0 win away from Bognor Regis Town and take on another tier eight side this time around in Paulton. 

Paulton are around the middle of the pack in the Southern League Division One West and saw off Gosport Borough after a replay in the last round, as well as knocking-out Bideford and Royal Wotton Basset in the previous two rounds. 

Kick-off at the Rocket Hospitality Beveree Stadium is at 3pm on Saturday. 

Hanwell Town face a very tough task if they are to reach the FA Cup fourth qualifying round as they travel to Ebbsfleet to face the National League South league leaders. 

The Geordies are up to fourth in the Southern Premier League South with only one loss since the opening day of the season and have progressed well in the FA Cup. 

They have seen off Eastbourne Town and Cray Valley PM, both away from home, in their two ties so far, but have possibly the most difficult fixture they could have asked for in Ebbsfleet. 

The Reds lost in the play-offs last season and have come flying out of the traps in pursuit of returning to the National League this season as they are unbeaten, dropping their first points of the season on Tuesday in a 1-1 draw at Oxford City. 

Kick-off at Stonebridge Road Stadium is at 3pm on Saturday. 

Kingstonian FC will have their work cut out for them if they are to record their second league win of the season as they welcome Potters Bar Town to Imperial Fields. 

Draws have plagued Hayden Bird's men so far this season, recording six in their opening eight league matches and have drawn two games 2-2 in the last week alone. 

The visitors to Tooting this weekend are yet to draw this season and have instead won six of their eight matches in the Isthmian League Premier Division. 

Potters Bar have scored six goals in their last two games and seem in fine form coming into this weekend. 

Kick-off at Imperial Fields is at 3pm on Sunday. 

Brentford Women are faced with higher league opposition as they travel to play Abingdon United Ladies in the FA Cup second round qualifying. 

The Bees won a thrilling first qualifying round match 5-4 at Bedfont Sports Club against Woodley United. 

Whilst Brentford have won all three of their home games in all competitions, they have still not won a game away from home and they will have to break that streak if they are to progress further in this year's FA Cup. 

Their opponents in Abingdon are in tier five of the women's game, the level above Brentford, and have won one lost one in the league so far this season and begin their FA Cup campaign this weekend. 

Kick-off at The Northcourt is at 2pm on Sunday.
