It’s the furthest Sports have ever travelled in the competition, but they are among the favourites to lift the famous old trophy.

Sports beat Biggleswade FC 5-3 in the second round at PSL on Saturday which is an indicator of how tough the third round tie will be.

Biggleswade play in Division One of the South Midlands League, while Cockfosters and Wembley are fourth and fifth respectively in the Premier Division of the same competition.
