The Beavers have not been that fortunate with their Cup draws in the last season or two and if they manage to get past Potters Bar Town, they will have another tricky tie against a team from a couple of steps down the pyramid.

They will face a journey, if they win tomorrow night, to Cinderford Town of the Southern League South & West on September 30th.

The Forresters saw off Hartley Wintney by a single goal on Saturday and will fancy their chances in the next round whoever they face.

After a steady, unspectacular start to the Vanarama National League South season, the Beavers can look forward to trying to make the First round proper of the Emirates FA Cup.

Opponents tomorrow are Potters Bar Town of the Bostik League North and after last season against Taunton Town, no one is taking them lightly, as they are doing well in their division.

Dowse will be looking to see who will be available for him to select from, with little niggles and suspensions to players giving him a headache.

Dowse is also uncertain about which of the loan players are likely to be available for him, so the line up will clearly be an interesting one and it will be a tricky match.

The kick off is 3pm at Beveree, with ticket prices being £12 for adults, £7 for concessions, £3 for under 16s and under 3s go free. Season tickets are NOT valid for the game, all must pay.

Text commentary via twitter on @HRBFC will be available as per recent matches.

Chairman Steve McPherson immediately chose to appoint Dowse and the decision was announced the following day.

Today, Alan reaches 3 years in the Beavers hotseat, and he's the first to admit, its been a great time.

"Has it really been that long?" was his first comment today on being reminded of the anniversary.

"That first season, it was tough but since then, its been brilliant."

"We've had cup wins and promotions and its been great, but with the chairman and board being ambitious, we know we haven't finished the job yet!"

"Everyone around the club wants success, from the board downwards to the fans and they've shared in that completely so far. We want to go as far as we possibly can."

"Of all the memories of those three years,...
