Next up - Biggleswade Town away on Saturday, 21st September at Langford Road, Biggleswade, Bedfordshire SG18 9JT; FA Cup 2nd qualifying round; kick off 3pm.

Admission - Adults £10, Concessions £8, Under-16s free

We have not travelled to Biggleswade Town since our Spartan League days in February 1950 though we have had five home meetings since then, the latest as recently as this July's pre-season friendly.

The Waders are currently playing at Step 3 in the Southern League premier central division and lie 9th in the table after their 4-0 midweek win at Leiston, the team we beat in the previous round. Throw in home advantage and I guess we have to say that they are favourites for this game though we travel on the back of a ten match unbeaten run. It should be a good game.

Should this tie require a replay it will be at Ware on Tuesday, 24th September at 7.45pm. Replay or not the eventual winners will receive £6,750 from the prize fund whilst the losers pocket £2,250.

Biggleswade beat St Neots 2-0 in a replay of the previous round following a 2-2 away draw. Their best season in the FA Cup came in 2013/4 when they battled through to the first round proper where they lost 4-1 at Stourbridge.

If either or both of Ware's two absentees from recent fixtures, Gareth Madden and Patrick Adamson, have returned by the weekend I imagine they will have to be content with a place on the subs bench.
