So onto today and at just gone four o'clock, and both Cambridge Utd and Tamworth knocked out earlier in the afternoon, the world sat glued to the screen counting how many Premiership clubs drew each other or drew a promotion chasing Championship side leaving the 'dregs' for the three, possibly four, remaining non league sides.
Even though the Harriers were one of the names drawn out early on as luck would have it missed out on West Brom who had been drawn seconds previously. We got Peterborough Utd.
Not to worry. This is a game that we could surprise with and gain another League scalp to add to Newports.
At the time of writing this Peterborough sit in fifth place in League One but had just gone through a run of five defeats in five league games before beating Wolves 1-0 at home last week. Yesterday they staked their place in the third round draw with an emphatic 5-0 home win against Tranmere with Britt Assombalonga grabbing a hat trick on the way.
As befits a club of their stature they have some decent players in their side, a side with old Harriers friend and foe Barry Fry as their Director of Football, and a well known manager in Darren Ferguson - the offspring of Sir Alex Ferguson.
We have met before and that game was also in the FA Cup but a long, long time ago. That was in a first round game back in November 1965 in front of over eleven thousand at London Road, Peterborough, with a 2-1 scoreline and our only goal coming from Dave Gilbert (no, I didn't see the game, cheeky).
So that should make our game in January a REVENGE game then. Can't wait.
