We will travel to Peterborough United or Stevenage FC in the Emirates FA Cup.
Andy Hessenthaler’s men will find out their second round opponent when League One Peterborough host League Two Stevenage in a first round replay on Tuesday 19th November, kick off 7:45 pm.
Marcus Maddison’s stunner for the Posh 11 minutes from time saw the two sides draw 1-1 at Broadhall Way on Saturday after Elliott List had fired the home side ahead.
Andy Hessenthaler said of the tie. “It would have been nice to have been at home again, but given our results against Southend, we should not be scared whoever we face.
“I expect myself and one of my staff will be at the replay and though Peterborough will be favourites, you never know in the FA Cup. We will be well prepared either way when the game comes along.
Athletic’s boss concluded: “Now we have a trip to Yeovil to get ready for and we want to keep our good run going in front of the TV cameras.”
The tie is scheduled to take place during the weekend of Saturday 30th November, with the victorious clubs winning £54,000 from the FA prize fund.
Our National League tie away to FC Halifax Town, originally planned for the same weekend, has been postponed with a new date for our trip to The MBI Shay Stadium to be announced in due course.
