Flackwell Heath will face a difficult test this evening as they take on Reading in the Berks and Bucks Cup.

Heath overcame a nervy second round game, beating Windsor 4-3 on penalties and will hope to progress again with victory over the Championship side.

They will most likely face a squad made up of under 23 and academy players, but it will no doubt be a stern test for Flackwell. The game at Wilks Park is scheduled for a 7:45pm kickoff.

Windsor FC are in action as they host Binfield in the Hellenic Premier Division this evening.

A win for Windsor would see them overtake their opponents, thanks to their superior goal difference, with only three points separating the sides. They currently sit 14th in the division but have games in hand over many of their rivals.

Last season’s meeting between the two sides saw a seven-goal thriller with Windsor coming out 4-3 winners.

The game is set to get underway at 7:45pm at Stag Meadow in Windsor.

Slough Town will look to bounce back after dropping two points to a late goal against Hampton and Richmond as they host Gloucester City this evening in the National League South.

The match kicks off at 7:45pm at Arbour Park with tickets priced at; £13- Adult (18-64), £9- Concession (65+), £5- Student (16-17, Student), £3 -Child ( Under 12 and must be accompanied by an adult).

The Blues will be hoping to make it four wins from their last four games, with Mark Bartley’s men having lost just once in 2019.

Their opponents sit eighth in League Two and come into the game off back-to-back defeats, with a semi-final place at stake.

The game is set to kick-off at 7:45pm at Oak Tree Road in Marlow.

Maidenhead United will take on Aylesbury United in the quarter finals of the Berks & Bucks Senior Cup tomorrow (Wednesday), with the tie to be played at Chesham United’s ground.

The Magpies go into the game off the back of an important victory over Boreham Wood in the league, which saw a first Maidenhead goal for James Akintunde, following his move from Chester.

Maidenhead have a rich history in the competition winning it 22 times, most recently in 2016/17.
