Hampton & Richmond Borough
The National League South’s bottom side will be looking for some relief from their league woes in the second qualifying round of the FA Cup this weekend.
The team travel to the Chiltern Hills to face Chesham, who are flying high in first place in the Southern League Premier.
But manager Gary McCann will know a win against their in-form hosts would give his squad a much-needed boost.
The Isthmian Premier League side host an in-form Grays Athletic who have won their past three games.
Like Hampton & Richmond, The Ks will be hoping to find some form against lower league opposition.
However, Essex-based Grays put five past them in a pre-season friendly in July and they will have to show signs of improvement if they are to progress.
Fellow Isthmian Premier League outfit Carshalton also face a team from a league below when they play away to Southern League South side Harrow Borough.
The Robins will be looking to bounce back from the 4-1 drubbing they received at the hands of AFC Hornchurch last week as they look to regain the form that saw them start the season with four wins from their first six.
Casuals’ start to their Isthmian Premier League campaign has been pretty dire: they’re bottom of the league and without a win from their first seven.
They will face an uphill battle as they go up against National League South side Chelmsford City on Saturday.
Tooting and Mitcham
The Isthmian League South Central team have started well, showing they are capable of promotion this season.
Spirits are high at Imperial Fields, as shown by their thumping 4-0 victory in midweek against Bedfont Sports.
However, they face a tough task when they play host to National League South side Dorking Wanderers this weekend.
They were knocked out at this stage last year by Woking and will be hoping to go at least one further.
