Due to the Henley Town pitch being unplayable, the tie was switched to the ASM Stadium, with United putting the game beyond doubt in the first-half as goals from Dan West (2), Lynton Goss (2) and Luke Ricketts gave the home side a 5-1 advantage at the break.

The second-half saw the return of top scorer Andy Gledhill following a period on the sidelines due to injury, and he immediately added to his tally with two goals, whilst Goss completed his hat-trick to seal a comfortable 8-1 win.

The draw for the quarters sees United travelling to Marsh Lane to face National League South side Oxford City.
