Cup fever continues on Tuesday with our first visit to Histon since 1996's FA Vase game. The late Dermot Drummy was our player manager back then and he scored but it was to no avail as we went down 3-2. Back then Histon were at the beginning of a successful period that saw them rise to the Conference National Division and feature in a televised FA Cup victory over Leeds United amongst other things.

This game is in the more mundane Velocity Trophy which may well mean that Paul Halsey puts his team's record run at risk by resting some players and fielding new joiners for assessment.

Those new joiners include Joshua Williams, signed from FC Romania and who gave us such a hard time in the three matches we have played against them so far. Another is Ahmed Abdulla who made 28 appearances for us in the 2017/8 season and who rejoins from Bishop's Stortford.

Don't forget that this tie is in the group stage of the competition so there are three points for a win, one for a draw but two for winning a drawn game on penalties. We have played one game so far in our group, beating Hertford 3-1 on September 10th.
