East Londoners looking to set up clash with Essex Senior League rivals Clapton in the next stage of famous, old competition

Sporting Bengal United will travel over 80 miles this evening hoping to create history in the FA Cup.

Imrul Gazi’s men make the trip to Ipswich Wanderers, of the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division, after playing out a goalless draw on Sunday.

The two teams couldn’t be separated at Wadham Lodge’s Stadium in Walthamstow at the weekend.

And they will do battle at the SEH Sports Ground in Humber Doucy Lane tonight for a place in the preliminary round of the competition.

The only previous time the east Londoners have reached that stage of the FA Cup is back in 2008.

Bengal also needed a reply to qualify for the preliminary round during the 2008/09 campaign and beating London Colney 1-0 at home after drawing their previous meeting 1-1.

Last weekend Gazi watched his Essex Senior League side create numerous chances at ‘home’ to Ipswich, but it finished goalless.

Ex-manager Anwar Uddin was in attendance and supporting his old club from the sidelines alongside his successor.

After the stalemate, Bengal’s current manager expressed his pride after taking charge of his first competitive match.

Gazi said: “I’m so proud of my lads, many positives to take into the reply with Ipswich Wanderers. We will only get better.

“Good to have Anwar at the game on Sunday, really appreciate the support and wise words.”

The winners of tonight’s tie at SHE Sports Ground will pocket £1,500 in prize money and earn a home tie with Clapton on August 20 in the next round.
