Jody Banim's Northern Premier side – step three of non-league – enjoyed an upset 3-1 victory over one-level-above Hereford on Tuesday, bagging more than £5,000 in prize money in the process.

Joe Cuff was at the double and Callum Coyle also on the scoresheet on a big night at Marston Road.

Now, they are set to host North West Counties Premier (step five) outfit Skelmersdale in the fourth qualifying round a week on Saturday.

If Rangers win the tie, they will get £9,375 and reach the first round proper for the first time in 14 years.
