OSSETT Albion face a tough trip to Blue Square Bet North side Hinckley United in the FA Cup Third Qualifying Round.

The Dimple Wells club beat North Ferriby United 2-1 on Saturday to progress in the prestigious competition and their reward is a trip to Leicestershire.

The Evo-Stik Division 1 North side will be underdogs going into the game but have already seen off higher-division opposition in North Ferriby in this season’s competition.

Hinckley, who beat Tividale 5-3 in their Second Qualifying Round clash at the weekend. have also struggled out of the blocks this season and sit bottom of the Blue Square Bet North table after seven games.

The match is scheduled to take place on Saturday, October 6.
