Peterborough United handed an inviting path to the third round of the FA Cup
Peterborough United have been handed a golden opportunity to reach the third round of the FA Cup.
If Posh beat lowly League Two side Stevenage in a first round replay at the Weston Homes Stadium on Tuesday, November 19 they will host National League side Dover Atletic in the second round, probably on Saturday, November 30. Dover are currently 12th in the National League.
Posh have played Dover once before in the FA Cup when goals from Dennis Emery (2), Terry Bly and Keith Ripley secured a 4-1 away win.
Posh went on to reach the fourth round that season - their first in the Football League - where they lost to Aston Villa in a replay at Villa Park in front of 64,531 fans, the biggest crowd to ever watch a Posh match.
