Neighbours Ascot United and Binfield clash on Tuesday night in a bid to reach the final of the Perpetua Press Floodlit Cup Final.

Holders Binfield go to the Racecourse Ground looking to retain the title they won at Windsor’s Stag Meadow last season, beating Thatcham Town in the final while Ascot won the competition at the end of the 2015/16 season with a 2-0 win over Brimscombe & Thrupp.

Binfield have been on a decent run since beating Windsor in the Quarter Finals back in February but were beaten 2-1 at Tuffley Rovers on Saturday.

For Ascot, Tuesday night is a chance at a second final this season having already made it to the Bluefin Sport Challenge Cup Final.

The Yellamen were without a game on Saturday and beat Brackley Town Saints 4-2 in the Quarter Final last Tuesday.

Also on Tuesday night, Windsor host the aforementioned Brackley in the Hellenic League Premier Division while in Division One East Woodley United travel to Didcot Town Development and AFC Aldermaston are at Chalvey Sports.
