NON-LEAGUE: St Ives Town bid to reach final; St Neots Town bid to pull further clear of relegation trouble; Godmanchester Rovers bid to keep on scoring

Manager Ricky Marheineke hopes it will be third time lucky for St Ives Town tonight.

Saints entertain lower-level Aylesbury United in a Southern League Challenge Cup semi-final at ProEdge Westwood Road, 7.45pm.

The last-four tie has been postponed on the last two Tuesdays, but it’s all systems go for tonight as Marheineke’s men big to secure their passage into a showpiece against Hayes & Yeading.

“It’s our last chance of silverware this season - and it is one we are determined to take,” said Marheineke. “But it will be far from an easy game.”

St Neots Town can face a tough Southern League Premier Division test tonight.
