I will have to check to see if any friends can get it on their screens. Living in Shropshire I can hear the sheep bleating in Wales, but can't watch their television programs in my house for some reason.

You can get BBC Wales on Sky - pretty sure it's one of the 900 channels.

May even be able to get it on the Iplayer...

You're not too far from Birmingham, I presume there'll be fanzones in major city centres for people who want to watch this match.

Get in, live on the tele on a Saturday evening. If it’s Stourbridge who get through I’ll be there though, good spot for a drink.

I was going to say that our selection was properly odd, but then the TV companies had little choice. We are one of only 3 draws that guarantee non-league at home v league.

I do wonder if Eastleigh get through how they will spin the game to make it interesting though. Southampton at home down the road, so I doubt many neutrals will be coming. I can't decide whether our numbers will be down because of the distance and difficulty in getting home after the game, or up because it's a new ground with a bit of attention.

Stourbridge would be better for TV, although the risk of an upset has me very nervous. Losing to Eastleigh would be really bad, losing to Stourbridge would be a catastrophe. We absolutely should beat either team though.

I remember watching us away at Cardiff in the FA Cup for a Friday night game a few years ago on BBC Wales on iPlayer, don't think I had to do anything to see it though.

Enjoyed watching us win at the Liberty on S4C once. Commentary all in flobalob apart from when John Hartson occasionally couldn’t remember the correct word and just said it in English instead. Kind of added to the fun if I’m honest.

Replay at home to Cheltenham tomorrow. We are playing really well at the moment but this will be a proper test. For once I am confident of going through, but this is Swindon and the FA Cup and most of us understand how that works!

We seem to have hit a bit of a sticky patch. We were poor against FGR and Swindon at home, and then we were battered by Newport last Tuesday (albeit a number of changes were made). Saturday sounded dour and we were hoping to catch Exeter on the break, very unsuccessfully.

We need to get back to the free-flowing type of play we had up to the FGR game, but Swindon seem to have our number this season having outplayed us in both games, and being absolutely robbed. It stands to reason they should win tomorrow night.

£10 ticket price tomorrow. Might entice a few from the Spa.

Any idea if there is likely to be a live stream available?
I think it's just the Bromley Brovers tie on BT, and I don't think any overseas broadcaster would be willing to fork out money for the rights to show a 1st round replay when there are so many Euro qualifiers on at the same time.

I'm afraid we'll have to make do with the radio comm on iFollow.

Not optimistic at beating Cambridge tomorrow. We seem incapable of creating chances.

Good price. We are charging £20 and £15, so I'm not expecting a big crowd

I don’t think it matters who we get - either Shrewsbury or Bradford away - we’ll play a flat back 9 and lose.

Shrewsbury as it’s a nice day out
Bradford as more chance of winning

The only bonus is that both are on direct train lines - whoop!

That ticket price is such that, if I had a babysitter, I would be hard pushed to turn the trip down.

I imagine we'll take a couple of hundred only though. I think a lot of our lot are expecting a defeat.
