Eastwood have beaten Stafford Rangers, after a replay, and Matlock Town to reach this stage with both victories coming away from home. They had drawn 1-1 at home to Stafford before winning the replay 3-1 and as Stalybridge were beating Warrington on Saturday they recorded a 3-0 win at Matlock to take their place in this fourth, and last, qualifying round.
Sam Duncum, Adam Muller and Lee Stevenson got the goals for Eastwood with Muller also missing a penalty in front of a crowd of 655 including a big away following.
Stalybridge Celtic and Eastwood Town are currently 12th and 14th respectively in Blue Square Bet North with Stalybridge on two points more with both having played ten league games.
