Both face trips to Premier Division opposition. Deeping, who have won their last five matches, are at Wisbech Town, while Yaxley, who have won six on the spin, travel to Leicester Nirvana.

The League Cup is wide open this season with Premier Division title favourites Peterborough Sports already knokced out.

Sports open the defence of the trophy that completed a fantastic foursome tonight when travelling to South Midlands League side Stotfold for a Hinchingbrooke Trophy tie. It’s the last of last season’s trophy haul that Sports can still win.
