We still want to progress to the next round surely, don't we?

Our pre-match ramblings…
Talk about honours even! It's been over twenty years since the Whites played a competitive match against this fine old club, having been formed in 1895, our paths only first crossed 12 years later as the leagues were set up on a regional basis for the early periods of both sides, typically we lost that first away encounter.
Since then we had won 21 games to their 19 with 12 draws, of course, this FA Cup defeat at home has evened up that stat for a while.
I wonder whether there will be another 20 year gap before we meet again in a league game, some might say that might be sooner than we might hope, the way our season's been dissolving.

All we are saying is… give us a win (or 23!)
Well all that can be said is, disappointing though it is to lose at home' in the FA Cup (the Grandaddy of all Cup Tournaments), to a lower division team, we might at elast take solice that it was not yet another home League defeat.
Who knows, this might be the last jolt up the backside the team needs.
Let's hope so!
