National League side Macclesfield Town play League One’s Oxford United in the first match of the second-round weekend, with a place in the third round and a potential tie against Premier League opposition.
Macclesfield have already beaten Oxford’s League one rivals Walsall to get here and, with Oxford slipping towards the relegation spots, this could be the Silkmen’s season. That said, Oxford will have an appetite for another Cup run, having last season made it to the fourth round for the first time in 17 years, eventually losing to Blackburn Rovers.
Macclesfield Town v Oxford United (Kick-off 7.55pm). Dan Walker presents coverage of the second-round match, which takes place at Moss Rose. Both of these sides know that they are just 90 minutes away from a place in the third round, which has the potential to provide them with a memorable match against a Premier League side, not to mention a welcome financial boost. Given their non-league status, the hosts first had to come through the qualifying stage before making it to the first-round proper, and secured their place in the world's oldest domestic competition with a 4-1 triumph away to fellow National League outfit North Ferriby United in the fourth qualifying round. The Silkmen then progressed to this stage following a shock 1-0 victory away to League One Walsall, so will be full of confidence as they face another side from the third tier of English football, although the U's will also be buoyed by their first-round performance, which saw them record a 5-0 win away to non-league Merstham of the Isthmian League Premier Division.
