Hanwell Town will host top of the National League South table Ebbsfleet United in the next round of the FA Cup. 

The Geordies had a second half turnaround to beat Cray Valley on Saturday and progress to this stage, but will now have to take on arguably the best team currently in the draw in the shape of Ebbsfleet. 

The Reds beat another National League South side in Dover Athletic on Saturday and sit top of tier six with eight wins from eight in the league. 

Elsewhere in the area, Hampton and Richmond Borough have drawn Gosport Borough or Paulton Rovers in the FA Cup third qualifying round. 

The Beavers claimed a 2-0 victory against Bognor Regis Town in their second qualifying match, with Ade Shokunbi and an own goal proving to be enough to get them past the Isthmian League Premier Division Side. 

Following a 1-1 draw on Saturday, Gosport and Paulton will have a replay at the Athletic Ground Winterfield Road tomorrow night to see which team will take on the Beavers on 1st October. 

Both sides play in the levels below Hampton, with Gosport Borough competing in the Southern League Premier Division South (tier seven) and Paulton Rovers playing in the Southern Football League Division One West (tier eight). 

Victory in the next round for the Beavers or the Geordies would put them one game away from the first-round proper as the clubs from the National League enter the draw in the fourth qualifying round.
