Gloucester City could face Taunton Town in the Emirates FA Cup Fourth Qualifying Round.\r\n\r\nHowever, the Tigers must get through a replay with Hemel Hempstead Town on Tuesday 4 October to get the opportunity at progressing into the First Round Proper for the 3rd time in five years.\r\n\r\nCity drew 2-2 with the Tudors at Whaddon Road on Saturday, having trailed 2-0 at one point before two stunning free kicks from Joe Hanks earned the Tigers a replay.\r\n\r\nTaunton currently sit 13th in the Southern League Division One South & West after a strong 2015/16 campaign, where they pushed league champions Cinderford Town all the way but came up short.\r\n\r\nSpeaking about the draw, manager Tim Harris said “I’ve got no thoughts past tomorrow night’s replay with Hemel Hempstead.\r\n\r\n”We are lucky to be in the cup to be brutally honest and we didn’t perform well on Saturday. If we get through tomorrow then we’ll start thinking about it but right now I’m only thinking about tomorrow and Hemel Hempstead.”\r\n\r\nShould the Tigers get through tomorrow night’s replay, the Fourth Qualifying Round tie will be played on Saturday 15 October, should there be a need for a replay it will be played on or before Thursday 20 October.
