The bookmakers have Consett at 7-2 to lift the Vase at Wembley with league rivals Hebburn Town the only club with a shorter price of 2-1.

Ties will be played on Saturday, February 29, the date City is scheduled to host Selston in the Midland Football League Premier Division.

Last-eight ties are worth £4,125 in prize money but the lure of Wembley will be far greater.
