Two of the area’s senior football clubs will be on home soil tonight (Tuesday).

Hastings United will host Faversham Town in Ryman Football League Division One South and Little Common will entertain Crowborough Athletic in round three of the Sussex Principal RUR Charity Cup.

Hastings will be targeting a fifth consecutive league victory and seventh on the spin in all competitions (including penalty shoot-outs), and if they get it, they will move into the league’s top six.

Currently 11th, the U’s are above Faversham on goal difference and have four games in hand. United did the double over their Kent opponents last season despite finishing 16 places below them.

Jack Harris was playing for Faversham then, but could well feature for United against them tonight having netted in two of United’s last four matches. Kick-off at The Pilot Field is 7.45pm.

Little Common, meanwhile, will be aiming to spring a surprise against higher grade Crowborough and set up a quarter-final at home to Chichester City.

Common are 10th in Macron Store Southern Combination Football League Division One, while Crowborough are 11th in the Southern Counties East Football League Premier Division.

Common knocked out higher grade Eastbourne United AFC in the previous round and their last two fixtures have produced 14 goals so an entertaining encounter is on the cards. Kick-off at the Recreation Ground is 7.15pm.
