Ticket details for Aldershot Town supporters will be announced in due course but the capacity at The Crabble Ground will be set at 5000. Dover currently lie in 6th position in the table, a point behind Farnborough. They have reached this stage of the FA Cup courtesy of victories versus Erith Town, Cambridge City, Farnborough and in the first round at Gillingham in the Kent derby. During the course of their FA Cup run they have currently netted 16 goals.

The two clubs have previously met in FA Cup action too. In September 1996 Dover defeated Steve Wigley's Isthmian Division One side 2-0 at The Crabble in front of 1793 spectators. In October 2000 Gary Abbott netted the only goal in the fourth qualifying round victory at the Recreation Ground in front of just under 3000 supporters to set up a first round encounter versus Brighton and Hove Albion, a match which in itself attracted a capacity attendance of 7500 and the Match of the Day cameras.

Speaking to the clubs official website 'The Shots Online' Glen Little said, " It has been some time without a victory and I don't necessarily feel that we have played badly in that time but things haven't gone our way. It has been a case of taking our chances. It would have been nice to have added a second but overall I think we played some good football and it is nice to be in the draw and a visit to Dover will be interesting. I have never played there before. They beat Gillingham in the last round so they won't be scared of us, that's for sure and we will have to go thereand play well."

"I understand the importance at this level of having a cup run for financial purposes. A cup run can make such a difference, especially if you get into the third round."
