LUTON Town have been drawn away to either Eastbourne Borough or Guiseley in the FA Trophy quarter-finals, writes Mike Simmonds.
Hatters reached the last eight after beating Gloucester City 1-0 on Friday night, while Eastbourne and Guiseley played out a 1-1 draw in Sussex on Saturday afternoon.
Simon Weatherstone had put the hosts ahead in the first half when his 45-yard free kick caught the wind and flew over the head of Guiseley keeper James Coates’ head.
But the Lions came roaring back to equalise when former Preston striker Joe O’Neill netted, only for striker James Walshaw, who has been called up to the England C squad, to pick up a harsh second yellow card for his over-indulgent celebrations.
