Hampton hoep to be fourth time lucky in FA Cup draw
Veteran midfielder Stuart Lake admits Hampton & Richmond Borough need a slice of good fortune to reach the FA Cup first round.
Hampton beat Arlesey Town 5-1 on Saturday to be in the hat for today's fourth qualifying round draw.
Lake was in the Hampton side that lost to League Two Dagenham & Redbridge in the first round six years ago and also appeared at the same stage of the competition for Basingstoke Town when they lost 1-0 at League One Brentford in 2011.
Hampton have played all three of their FA Cup matches thus far at the Beveree and the 33-year-old captain admitted they needed another home draw to stand a chance of progress.
"I've been lucky enough to have played in the first round and it would be nice to be involved in that again," said Lake, who returned to the club in the summer.
"We'd love to get another home draw.
"You've got to beat someone big to get one of those ties in the first round.
"If we get a home draw you never know."
