After their latest league victory at the weekend, Hastings United are set to embark on back-to-back cup fixtures.

First up tonight (Monday) is a Ryman Football League Robert Dyas Cup second round tie at home to fellow Division One South side Faversham Town. Kick-off at The Pilot Field is 7.45pm.

United lie second in the league with 29 points from 13 games, while Faversham are 12th with 18 from 12. Faversham are one of only two teams to beat United in the league so far this season, though, following their 2-0 victory at their own ground last month.

U’s manager John Maggs is likely to give some game-time to some players who have been on the substitutes’ bench of late and might also have a look at one or two triallists.

United are offering reduced admission to the match - which is their fifth in succession on home soil - for adults with tickets priced at £5. Under-21s as usual get in free.
