Cup kings Peterborough Sports seek progress in a third different knockout competition tonight when travelling to King’s Lynn Town for an Evo Stik Southern League Cup tie (October 2, 7.45pm).

Sports are also still in the FA Cup and the FA Trophy. Their third qualifying round FA Cup tie at home to National North Division leaders Chorley will be streamed live on the BBC website this Saturday (October 6, 12.30pm kick off).

Unbeaten Sports will fancy their chances against a team from a higher division. King’s Lynn have endured a slow start to their Premier Division Central campaign, winning just two of their eight league matches. Former Posh defender Simon Clark lost the manager’s job aftre seven games of the season and has now been replaced by joint-bosses Robbie Back and Neil Fryatt who oversaw a first home win of the season on Saturday.

Yaxley, who conceded seven in a Division One home loss at the weekend, have a much tougher game in the same competition at home to Biggeswade Town who are fourth in the Premier Division.

There is also action for Wisbech Town (at Belper), Stamford AFC (at Gresley) and Spalding United (home to Carlton) in the East Division of the Evos Stik Northern League. Spalding are next-to-bottom without a win all season.

March Town and Wisbech St Mary are in Eastern Counties Division One Cup action at home to Fakenham and away to Swaffham respectively.

Blackstones host fellow Division One side Melton Town in a United Counties League Cup tie tomorrow (October 3).
