BILLERICAY Town boss Dean Brennan admitted his side face a tough test when they visit Hereford in the first round of the FA Trophy.

Town advanced in the competition as Jake Robinson's spot-kick was enough to claim a 1-0 win over Hampton & Richmond Borough in the third qualifying round.

And Brennan confirmed the draw, which was made at Wembley Stadium, had not been kind to Billericay.

"You always want a home tie in cup competitions, so a trip to Hereford is not necessarily the draw we were hoping for," said Brennan.

"The last few draws haven't been kind to us, in both the FA Cup and FA Trophy, but we will deal with it and we know it will be a tough game.

"Hereford are a massive football club with lots of history.

"I played at Edgar Street a long time ago and it will be a tough place to go."

Hereford, who were founded as a phoenix club for Hereford United in 2014, are currently in the National League North relegation zone.

The hosts defeated FC United of Manchester in the third qualifying round.

And the tie will take place on Saturday, December 15 at Edgar Street.
