The New Manor Ground will no doubt host a bumper crowd for the FA Vase clash.

Both sides progressed in the competition last weekend, Ilkeston winning 2-0 at Wolverhampton SC and Eastwood winning at step five club Quorn, 2-1.

The Robins play a division higher than their visitors, with rivalries of days gone by likely to be revived despite both towns’ respective clubs having been re-formed in recent seasons.

The tie will take place at the New Manor Ground on Saturday, December 1, with there being just four rounds remaining between the winners and a Wembley final on May 19.
