The Bucks are currently the lowest ranked side in the competition and will be playing in an FA Cup second round tie for the first time since the 1958/59 season, when they were beaten by Accrington Stanley, then Division Three North, 6-1.

Having started at the first qualifying round stage, they have won five games to reach the second round proper.
