A win would see Newark scoop £2,250 in prize money.

Newark have already played two matches in this year's competition — winning 4-0 on both occasions.

In the extra preliminary round, Danny Meadows, Liam King, Rashaan Francis and an own goal forced by Kevin Bastos saw Newark cruise past Deeping Rangers in front of a capacity crowd at Lowfields.

While on Saturday, in the preliminary round, Bastos, Ben Hutchinson, Craig Westcarr and captain Nathan Stainfield were on target in the win at Maltby Main.
