If scores are level at 90 minutes, the tie will be decided by extra time, followed if necessary by penalties.
The Whites will play Laverstock & Ford in the Semi-Final of the competition, the match to take place on either Monday 12th or Tuesday 13th February dependent on venue. Although Salisbury came out of the hat as the home team, a neutral ground is always used at the Semi-Final stage.

The teams last met in the competition in 2015, when Laverstock defeated Salisbury 2-1 at Laverstock.
Salisbury Football Club regret to confirm that Jake Wannell suffered a serious injury, resulting in a ruptured Achilles, after the game at Poole Town. It is unlikely that he will play again this season.
He underwent surgery after the game, and we are now able to confirm that he is back in his home town, Torquay.
All at the Club wish him well, and a speedy recovery.

The club is pleased to announce two new signings, both of whom should be available for Saturday’s game against Beaconsfield Town.
18 year old left sided defender/midfielder and former AFC Bournemouth Scholar Morrison was released by the Cherries in the summer, and has joined the Whites from Bluefin Sport Championship League side Portadown.
Attacking midfielder Sparkes, 18, who can play anywhere across the centre of the park, joins the Whites on loan from Exeter City. He made the step up into City’s first team squad at age 16.
Manager Steve Claridge said of the signings: “We have taken on two young players who are both highly thought of, at a time when we need to add to our squad because of the number of games in which we are involved following our success in League and Cup competitions. I am sure they will play a full part in the Club’s progress.”
Both players should be available for Salisbury’s clash with Beaconsfield Town on Saturday.
