Bognor will go to Walton Casuals in the second qualifying round of the FA Trophy if they overcvome Bracknell Town in Tuesday night's first qualifying round replay at Nyewood Lane.

The Rocks drew 2-2 in Berkshire on Saturday thanks to goals by Jimmy Muitt and - in injury time - Brad Lethbridge.

The replay is at the Lane with a 7.45pm kick-off on Tuesday.

The winners will visit Walton Casuals - currently 13th in the Southern League premier south, the same level as the Bostik premier that the Rocks play in - on Saturday, November 10.

Walton beat Molesey in Saturday's first qualifying round.

Bognor battle back to force Trophy replay

Meanwhile Bognor coach Robbie Blake says the team must try to snatch an early goal to ease their anxieties when they host Bracknell Town in the replay.

Blake took charge of the side that earned a 2-2 draw at Bostik south central side Bracknell on Saturday with Bognor boss Jack Pearce away from the dugout keeping tabs on a potential new signing.

And former Pompey coach Blake believes scoring first against the men from Berkshire will help his side relax and settle into the game. The visitors had to come back from being 2-1 down in the first game and did so thanks to a late strike from Lethbridge, on loan from Fratton Park. Muitt had bagged a leveller for 1-1 before the hosts once again took the lead.

Blake said: "I'd like us to go a goal up and that will release anxiety problems we've got at the minute. We have got Bracknell again on Tuesday and we need to make sure we have the right attitude and give a good account of ourselves

"In the first game, we lacked confidence and had bad body language after a couple of defeats and two draws in last four games. We've been a little bit down but the signs are good. The players will work harder and do the right things more simply and it'll get better.

"It looks like we are feeling sorry for ourselves, we're a little bit quiet. But we've not got a big squad and they're having to play a lot of games at the minute. I used to hate training and preferred playing games!

"I thought we were the better team against Bracknell in the first game even though we were poor at times. We had five clear cut chances in first half and hit the bar twice and we should have scored. They had two chances and scored two."
