Not expecting this to be on either. Forecasted to be below freezing at kick-off.

Ten quid for a hillier cup game, at least dick turpin wore a mask.

If game is on I expect Westwood, Punter, Gilchrist and Ford to make up a back four, and Robbins and Dean upfront and I will leave it to Peaksy to decide who the others are. If pitch not to hard maybe Oulton will get a run out.

Although not too concerned about the result I would want a close encounter, no injuries or red cards. Don't expect a crowd of over 600 this time, maybe nearer 400.
On a positive note another day at Sixfields in May would be very welcome probably against Brackley.

One downside if game is off is that Fairlambs suspension would now take in Chalfont and Uxbridge games.

I would suggest our side might be stronger than it might ordinarily have been given we've had so many games called off lately and match fitness could start becoming an issue.

Does anyone know if there is going to be a pitch inspection? I've got a mate coming for his first game, hopefully it's on and it's a good show from Diamonds.

This is a club that charged us £20 a ticket at Rockinghorse Road when we beat them 3-0, so I'm not surprised to be honest.

You are right and I am hopelessly wrong. So we are going for it.
