On Saturday September 11, it's King's Lynn Town's turn to host a televised clash as Dagenham & Redbridge fall into focus at the Walks.

Weymouth vs Dover Athletic follows just seven days later - the following weekend's action comes from Derbyshire as Chesterfield see beaten Promotion Finalists Torquay United pitch up at the Technique Stadium.
