Hastings United will entertain neighbours Westfield in a Sussex Senior Cup second round derby tonight (Tuesday).

United are riding high in Ryman Football League Division One South, while Westfield are in the bottom half of Sussex County Football League Division Two.

Despite the two-division gap between the clubs, United are expected to field a strong squad for a match which will get underway from 7.45pm at The Pilot Field.

United are unbeaten in their last eight league games, although they’ve been held to a draw in their last two and were beaten 4-2 away to Westfield in a pre-season friendly. Admission is £5 for adults and free for under-21s.

Elsewhere tonight, mid-table Sussex Division One side Rye United will make the long journey to Division Two high-flyers Loxwood for a tricky Sussex RUR Charity Cup third round tie.

Rye will be hoping to build on the improved form they showed during the 3-0 victory at home to Cove in the FA Vase on Saturday. The winners will be away to Horsham YMCA or Hassocks - two sides going well in Division One - in the quarter-finals.
