Gills Visit Deepdale In Cup

4 November 2012

North End have been drawn at home to face League Two leaders Gillingham in the second round of the FA Cup at Deepdale.

The tie is to be played the weekend of December 1st, with the exact date, time and pricing to be confirmed on Monday.

The Gills, perennial rivals of the Lilywhites in the 1990s, overcame League One Scunthorpe United 4-0 at Priestfield in the first round.

The Lilywhites, ball 38, were first out of the velvet bag, with Cyrille Regis and John Wark drawing the teams at Wembley.

Gillingham is also a former club of manager Graham Westley, who joined the Kent outfit as a player after leaving Queens Park Rangers, where he had come through the youth set up.

The Gills, now managed by Martin Allen are five points clear at the top of the fourth tier and will be a tough test for North End, but the manager will be delighted to have been drawn with another home tie.
