Big Cup Week Continues Tonight

23 October 2012

The first team travel to FC Halifax Town's Shay Stadium tonight for their FA Cup with Budweiser Fourth Qualifying Round Replay tie (ko 7.45pm).

With the teams unable to find a goal between them on Saturday, it will take a replay tonight to find out who will be playing host to League One Walsall in the First Round Proper a week on Saturday.

Boss David Holdsworth will be without the services of midfielder David Morgan through suspension following the teenager's stoppage-time sending off whilst left-back Peter Gilbert is doubtful having limped off early on with a hamstring injury.

Striker Vadaine Oliver, meanwhile, could be pushing for a return to the squad following his recent injury lay-off, although Holdsworth is expected to stick with the experienced pair of Jamie Taylor and Colin Larkin who finished Saturday's game as the strike pairing.

Less than 24 hours later, it will be the turn of the U18s to try and secure cup success as they entertain their counterparts from Notts County at The 12th Imp Sincil Bank Stadium in the First Round Proper of the FA Youth Cup. This game will kick-off at 7.00pm with admission prices, stipulated by the FA, being £3 for adults and £1 for concessions/juniors. A home tie against either Hartlepool United or Fleetwood Town will await the winners of this match.
