Replays will be played tonight

Football League giants Doncaster Rovers and Swindon Town are among those set to face Kent’s non-league teams in the first round proper of the FA Cup.

The draw on Monday followed the fourth qualifying round at the weekend, which saw Dartford triumph over Burgess Hill Town to set up a mouth-watering home tie against one-time Premier League outfit Swindon.

Ebbsfleet United face a replay against East Thurrock tonight, with the winner hosting Doncaster, while the winner of the Kent derby between Dover and Bromley will be rewarded with a trip to Rochdale.

League One Gillingham, who received a bye to the first round, host either Dagenham and Redbridge or Leyton Orient.

None of the sides in the county made it past the first round last season, while only Welling United progressed to the second round in 2015/16.

The ties will be played over the weekend of November 4 and 5.
