Tamworth's reward for their tenth appearance in the first round proper will be a trip to Coca-Cola League One side Bournemouth
The Lambs booked their place with a 3-1 victory over Altrincham, courtesy of two goals from Jake Edwards and one from fellow loanee Trevor Robinson, but Tamworth player-manager Mark Cooper admitted they would have liked a bit more luck in the draw.
"We would have preferred a trip to Nottingham Forest or a home tie with a side against whom we would have really fancied our chances," he said. "We'll obviously give it a go at Bournemouth and try to cause an upset but we'll be massive underdogs."
Cooper felt the Lambs were comfortable winners against Alty - who once booted Birmingham City out of the Cup in the third round - but they left it late.
Robinson, making his bow after joining from Millwall, smacked a cracking leftfooted shot past goalkeeper Stuart Coburn for the opener on 54 minutes, but the visitors levelled when Lambs defender Adie Smith could only divert Colin Potts' cross into his own net 11 minutes later.
A replay looked likely until Edwards, a member of Exeter's squad which tackled Manchester United last season, pounced on a rebound on 84 minutes after the goalkeeper had spilled Graham Ward's free-kick and then the striker nodded in Smith's cross two minutes from time.
Kidderminster Harriers paid the price for failing to make the most of their firsthalf chances as they bowed out 1-0 at Southport. The financial consequences for the club, missing out on £10,000 prize money on Saturday and a potentially lucrative run, could be equally distressing.
Manager Stuart Watkiss admitted: "It's a massive blow to the club, there's no doubt about that. We were really hoping to get into the first round and get in some extra revenue.
"It hasn't happened and it will have an effect on the club. It's going to make everything just that little more difficult."
It could have been so different had Daryl Burgess hit the target with a headed opportunity or Simon Russell beaten goalkeeper Steve Dickinson or, most crucially of all, Iyseden Christie found the net instead of poking wide when one-on-one with the shot-stopper.
Instead, Southport grabbed the winner through former Hereford United player Chris Lane's volley from Matty McGinn's cross in the 69th minute.
Burton Albion boss Nigel Clough will face a meeting with one-time Liverpool and England team-mate Mark Wright after the Brewers were handed a trip to Peterborough. Two first-half headers from Jon Shaw were enough for the Brewers to defeat Leek Town 2-0 at Eton Park.
Former Tamworth favourite Mark Turner was the happier of the Turner clan after he helped Alfreton Town hold his dad, Graham, and his Hereford United to a goalless draw at Edgar Street. The replay will be held tomorrow with the winners facing a trip to Cambridge City.
Nuneaton Borough have a second chance to put right a lacklustre show when they have to head to Tiverton Town tomorrow for a replay.
Roger Ashby's men struggled to show the form which has pushed into second spot in the Nationwide North as they were held to a goalless draw at Manor Park.
Tivvy looked the far livelier outfit and only the upright denied Chris Ball, while Stewart Yetton fired wide with only Darren Acton to beat but Boro might have snatched victory when Gez Murphy headed wide in the final moments.
The incentive for tomorrow's winners in Devon is what would appear to be a winnable home tie with Ryman One side Ramsgate.
