Emirates FA Cup Preliminary Round
Saturday 25th August 2018
Kick off @ 3:00pm
We have a break from league action now as we turn our attention towards the Emirates FA Cup with Eynesbury Rovers the visitors to The Glassworld Stadium tomorrow afternoon and a place in the 1st Qualifying Round at stake.
Rovers got through their last tie with a 2-1 win at Raunds Town, goals from Luke Smith and T’ai Williams securing the win. In the league (UCL Premier Division) they have had a fine start and are currently in 2nd place behind Daventry Town with 7 points from their opening 3 games.
Our own start to the season has been strong too of course and Lance will want his team to maintain their 100% record in all competitions by making further progress in the Cup. The Gaffer will have some team selection decsions to make with everyone performing well and pushing for places. Danny Gould suffered a muscle injury in the warm up before Tuesday night’s win over Ely City and will likely require a late fitness test tomorrow but other than that Lance reports a full squad available and ready to go.
Should tomorrow’s game end in a draw there will be a replay at the Alfred Hall Memorial Ground on Tuesday evening, 28th August with a 7:45pm kick off.
