This Tuesday 11th October Chesham Utd travel to Potters Bar Town for this League Challenge Cup Round One match. This is the first of two cup games between these sides this week, with the teams also facing each other at The Meadow on Saturday 15th October in the FA Cup Fourth Qualifying Round. This League Cup game was originally scheduled for October 4th but was rescheduled due to Potters Bar having unfinished business in their FA Cup Third Qualifying Round away replay in which they did magnificently to knock out Bath City, flying high in the National League South, and so set up Saturday's FA 4QR match at Chesham

In the sides most recent matches Potters Bar lost 2-0 at home v Horsham in the FA Trophy Preliminary Round whilst Chesham were held 1-1 at home in a tight battle v Merthyr Town in the Southern Premier league

The League Challenge Cup is played to a conclusion on the night; there is no extra time, so if the sides are level after ninety minutes the game goes straight to penalties.

The venue is Potters Bar Town FC, The Pakex Stadium Parkfield, Watkins Rise (off The Walk), Potters Bar, Herts, EN6 1QB. Link to details on Potters Bar Town's website here

andy leeseManager Andy Leese commented:

"The League Cup game has thrown up a real dilemma this week! We will give our younger players in the club the chance to play tomorrow night, and to experience the level. Potters Bar will do the same as we both look to prepare for the weekend without further risk of injury or fatigue.

"We did ask for the game to be moved to help both clubs, but to no avail. It gives the young lads an opportunity to stake a claim for the weekend and it might give Toby Little a chance to test his fitness.

"Please get along and support the lads if you can!"
