Millwall to face National League side in FA Cup

MILLWALL will play Braintree Town at The Den in the second round of the FA Cup.

The Lions defeated Southend 1-0 in the first round (above), while National League Braintree were 7-0 winners over Eastbourne Borough.

The two clubs have recent links, with Tom King and former Millwall midfielder Jack Powell both spending time on loan at Braintree last season.

Braintree reached the National League play-off semi-finals last season but were knocked out by Grimsby. They have struggled this season and are currently in 22nd place in the table.

The second-round ties will take place the weekend starting December 2.
