TAUNTON Town head of football Rob Dray has warned his team to expect a tough test in Saturday’s FA Cup first round qualifying tie at Winchester City (ko 3pm).

The Peacocks made it to the fourth round qualifying stage last year, having reached the first round proper in 2016, but Dray believes there is no room for complacency having watched Winchester’s 3-1 replay win over AFC Stoneham on Tuesday night.

He told the County Gazette: “They [Winchester] looked very dangerous; it’s a tough draw for us and we need to be hitting our straps early on against them.”

Taunton will be missing centre-back Nick Grimes following his sending off at Harrow Borough last weekend but they hope to have Jamie Price available, after the defender missed the Harrow game with a sore back.

Winchester, who sit seventh in Division 1 South of the Bet Victor Southern League (one tier below the Peacocks), are set to field a former Taunton centre-back – Keith Emmerson.

Elsewhere this weekend, Wellington and Bishops Lydeard return to Western League action after being knocked out the FA Vase last time out.

Wellington travel to Roman Glass St George in the Premier Division, with Lydeard on the road to Welton Rovers in the First Division (both 3pm).
