Despite last week's disappointing defeat to Billericay Town, the Beavers have a chance to regroup and regain some of the confidence lost, as they face AFC Hornchurch in the Emirates FA Cup 3rd round, qualifying.

Following the defeat, gaffer Gary McCann stated there's never any positives from losing but he will have learned much from the performance and he'll be looking to tweak things around against the Bostik Premier League's draw specialists.

In their 9 games, the Urchins are undefeated but only sit in 6th place having recorded 6 draws, giving an impression they are a tough unit to break down.

Recent signing George Purcell looks to have given them a boost and the defence appears to have tightened up their act, as the team have won 4 straight in all competitions.

The Beavers still lie 4th in National League South, despite the defeat last week, and are still in a good run of form. Gary might choose to send out Charlie Burns for another appearance and it will be interesting to see what combination of midfield the gaffer will choose for this very difficult FA Cup tie, which will be worth £15,000 to the victors.

Ticket prices are £13 for adults, £8 for concessions, £3 for under 16s and under 5s enter free, please remember that season tickets are NOT valid for the game and that ALL PAY.

There will be the usual live commentary via the club's twitter feed, @hrbfc, throughout the afternoon if you can't make it.
