We're still in cup mode for this game albeit that the early stages of the Velocity Trophy see us in group games competing for top spot in a mini league. The reward is progress to the knock phase along with other group winners plus premier division clubs.

Our opponents are local rivals Hertford whom we have met in league cup matches under both the Delphian and Athenian competitions, for which we have reserved some poor performances, but never in the Isthmian league cup. Hopefully we'll produce a better display in this game.

Hertford have already played in this season's competition, drawing 0-0 with Cambridge City on Saturday but losing 3-0 in the penalty shoot out. As per the rules of the competition Hertford took one point for the draw at 90 minutes and City two points for the win on penalties.

Both sides will probably take the opportunity to give match time to squad players with Paul Halsey likely to take the chance to give new signing Sam Chaney more minutes on the pitch to bring up his fitness levels after what appears to have been a long lay-off at senior level.

In keeping with the mini league theme there will be a "mini" programme for this match rather than our usual production.

Don't forget that the club shop will be open before the match and at half time.
