AFC Sudbury are set to face a trip to either Sleaford Town or Huntingdon Town in the second qualifying round of the FA Cup a week on Saturday.

Saturday’s first qualifying round tie between the Cambridgeshire United Counties Premier Division sides had to be abandoned after a mass brawl broke out.

Sleaford had been leading 2-1 when the incident broke out after a Huntingdon player was sent off in the 87th minute following a coming together with a member of the opposition management team.

It will now be down to the Football Association to decide who will progress through, if both teams are kicked out AFC could be set to receive a bye.

The Yellows booked their place in the draw with a 2-1 win at fellow Ryman League Division North Burnham Ramblers on Saturday, with Michael Shinn scoring a second-half winner.

It followed a 4-1 home win over Thurlow Nunn League First Division side Ipswich Wanderers in the preliminary round.
