OXFORD City are aiming to avoid being on the wrong side of an Emirates FA Cup upset tomorrow.

David Oldfield’s men begin this season’s journey in the competition with a second qualifying round trip to Frome Town, who are fifth in Pitching In Southern League Division 1 South.

The step four side play two levels below City, who have grown used to creating cup shocks in recent years.

The club have reached the second round proper twice since 2017, dumping out Football League opponents Colchester United and Northampton Town.

Banbury United made Cup history of their own last season, ending a 47-year wait to get to the first round proper.

Their visit to Northern Premier League side Nantwich Town comes three days after striker Henry Landers was handed a suspended sentence for possession with intent to supply cocaine.

Banbury only became aware of the matter yesterday morning and will make a further statement ‘in due course’.

Meanwhile, North Leigh host St Neots Town as they bid to stay top of Southern League Division 1 Central.

Eddie Odhiambo’s men are one point clear.

Kidlington host Barton Rovers after drawing 1-1 with AFC Dunstable on Wednesday, while fifth-placed Didcot Town are on the road at Kempston Rovers.
