Stevenage’s path towards a potential money-spinning third round FA Cup tie will need to go through a side that were only relegated from the Premier League in 2017.

Boro will face Hull City in the second round of the famous old competition, scheduled to be played on Saturday, November 28.

The Essex-based side had twice equalised over the 120 minutes at the Lamex Stadium after goals from Ben Coker and Danny Newton had put the hosts ahead.

The League One Tigers meanwhile came through 2-0 at the expense of Fleetwood Town.
