Barrow AFC have been given a home tie against Solihull Moors in the fourth qualifying round of the FA Cup, as they look to reach the competition proper for the first time in three years.

It’s a tricky game for the Bluebirds, as they’ll be up against a fellow National League side in Solihull, who took League One side Blackpool to a replay in the second round last season.

However, it’s a team they have already beaten this season, having defeated them 3-0 at Holker Street last month, with midfielder John Rooney scoring twice from free kicks.

AFC lost out at the same stage to Chorley in the previous campaign, which came one year after they were embarrassingly knocked out by Shaw Lane (a team that no longer exists).

Manager Ian Evatt said: "It's a tough tie for both teams, but I think if you asked [Solihull boss] Tim Flowers - sometimes I think you've got to put yourself into the opposition manager's shoes and of all the ties in the northern section, having us and the way we're playing at the moment is one you'd like to avoid.

"I think it is a worse draw for them than it is for us, but having said that it's a really tough game.

"It's opposition we know well, that we can prepare for well and it's a good game of football because there are no guarantees, but we'll be looking to perform they way we have done."

The tie at Holker Street will take place on Saturday, October 19.
