In some shocking news, Aylesbury United’s cup match at Royston tonight (Tuesday) is ‘definitely on’ after a pitch inspection this afternoon.

The Ducks travel to Royston for their Red Insure Cup quarter-final having not kicked a ball for the best part of a month.

The Crows currently sit in fourth place in the Calor Southern League Division One Central table.

United know that if they win the game at Garden Walk, they will go on to face St Neots Town in the last four of the competition.

The Ducks’ run to the quarter-finals has seen them record two notable wins over higher league opponents.

A 4-2 away win at Hemel Hempstead – which featured a hat-trick from top scorer Stacey Field – was followed by a dramatic second-round win against former landlords Chesham United.

After the match against the Generals had finished 2-2 after 90 minutes at Bell Close, the sides went straight to a penalty shoot-out.

Loanee goalkeeper Alex Tokarczyk, who is now back with his parent club, the Tudors, saved three penalties throughout the course of the evening to inspire United to a second successive shock against a side fighting in the upper echelons of the Calor League Premier Division.

Speaking ahead of tonight’s game boss Tony Joyce said: “We have a fully fit squad and the players are chomping at the bit to play a competitive game.

“We have already sprung two surprises and I see no reason why we can’t score another win against a side who on paper are expected to beat us.”
