Notts County face Oxford City at Meadow Lane in FA Cup second round

Notts County have been drawn against Oxford City in the second round of the FA Cup.

The Magpies will do battle with them at Meadow Lane on the weekend of December 2.

Kevin Nolan’s side booked their place in the second round of the competition with a brilliant 4-2 fightback win against League One Bristol Rovers on home soil last Friday night.

Notts were staring at defeat after conceding twice in the opening 12 minutes of the tie, but on-loan Nottingham Forest midfielder Ryan Yates scored twice to spark a comeback that was completed by goals from Jon Stead and Jorge Grant.

Mansfield Town, who beat non-league Shaw Lane 3-1 in the first round, will face Accrington or Guiseley at home in the second round.
