Today's FA Trophy quarter-final draw brought mixed results for Eastleigh.

They have been blessed with a home tie - but against the toughest oppostion.

Richard Hill's men - 3-2 third round conquerors of Dover Athletic - will entertain the winners of tomorrow's replay between Luton Town and Cambridge United who sit first and second respectively in the Skrill Conference Premier.

With four Hampshire clubs in the last eight, the chances were high that two would draw each other - and so it has transpired.

Lee Bradbury's Havant & Waterlooville will entertain Aldershot Town, whose former Winchester City and Eastleigh striker Brett Williams sits top of Conference Premier goal charts.

Alex Pike's Gosport Borough have pulled the short straw of a long away trip to North Ferriby United who are top of the Conference North.

The ties are scheduled to be played on Saturday, February 1.

FA Trophy quarter-final draw: Havant & Waterlooville v Aldershot Town, Eastleigh v Cambridge United or Luton Town, North Ferriby Utd v Gosport Borough, Grimsby Town v Tamworth or Chorley.
