Charlton to face non-league opposition in the FA Cup – Dons take on either Gillingham or Cheltenham

Charlton Athletic have drawn either Gateshead or Altrincham in the second round of the FA Cup.

The non-league sides played out a 2-2 draw on Saturday, and will replay to determine who faces the Addicks in the next stage of the competition.

The South London club beat Havant & Waterlooville 4-0 in the first round. A brace from Jayden Stockley and goals from Josh Davison and Mason Burstow mean they have advanced to round two.

Charlton have never faced Altrincham or Gateshead in a competitive fixture before.

AFC Wimbledon have been handed a home tie against either Gillingham or Cheltenham Town.

The League One duo drew 1-1 in the first round of the cup, while the Dons beat National League North side Guiseley 1-0 to progress to the next round.

The last time Wimbledon faced the Gills was in a 1-1 draw back in August. The Dons’ last match against the Robins also ended in 1-1 back in May 2015.

The second round ties will be played on the weekend of Saturday, December 4.
