Barwell aim to make home advantage count in Cup tie
Barwell will put their Evo-Stik Southern League campaign to one side tomorrow as they entertain AFC Wulfrunians in the FA Cup first qualifying round.
The Premier Division side won't be taking the in-form Wulfs too lightly at Kirkby Road – the West Midlands Regional League side have won three of their first four Premier Division games this season.
Coalville Town and Loughborough Dynamo represent the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Division One South with home clashes against Premier Division sides Ilkeston and Grantham Town respectively.
The Ravens – top of the division after an unbeaten start to the season – will fancy their chances against struggling Ilkeston, who have suffered four defeats from their first six games.

Jerome Murdock and Ryan Robbins have already bagged four goals apiece in the league for Coalville and will be confident of adding more to their tally.
Dynamo, on the other hand, may not view their home draw so favourably. Having lost all three of their home games in the league, they face a Grantham side that has won two of their three games on the road this season, keeping two clean sheets in the process.
Quorn welcome Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Premier Division's Buxton to the Farley Way Stadium.
Quorn are currently unbeaten in the United Counties Premier Division so will be in high spirits against a Buxton side in indifferent form, having won two, drawn two and lost two already this season.
Thurnby Nirvana and Blaby and Whetstone Athletic carry the East Midlands Counties League flag in the Cup – and Thurnby have been handed a plum home tie.
Gresley are the visitors to Dakyn Road tomorrow, which should mean a healthy crowd. It is a tough assignment, though, for the home side.
Gresley won the Midland Alliance last season and have made a sound start to life in the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Division One South this term.
Blaby face Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Premier Division side Eastwood Town and, although they have to travel, they will fancy their chances of causing an upset.
Eastwood have lost all six of their league games to date, while Athletic have made a good start in the EMCL thanks largely to the goals of Danny Gallagher and Jermaine Gordon, who will pose a considerable threat tomorrow.
