PREVIEW | Newark Flowserve (H)

The Bulls hope to progress to the fourth round of the Buildbase FA Vase when Notts rivals Newark Flowserve come to visit the FTA.

The last 16 is the furthest AFC have ever gone in the FA's lowest cup competition - that stage is now just two wins away.

The Bulls beat Graham Street Prims, Rainworth Miners Welfare, Hanley Town and Long Buckby to reach this stage of the competition, all bizarrely at home bar the final fixture which had to be played at Clipstone's Lido Ground.


Last Time Out

It's been two-and-a-half weeks since AFC kicked a ball in a competitive game; the last two league outings at home to Maltby Main and away at Albion Sports were both called off due to poor weather conditions leaving the pitches waterlogged.

That meant that the 2-2 draw at Silsden in their last competitive fixture has kept the Bulls unbeaten in November.

Ross Duggan and Brandon Webster bagged the goals, but Silsden mounted a comeback and squeezed home a late free-kick to earn a point.


The Opposition

Saturday's opposition have their eyes on promotion to Step 4, with the Highwaymen just four points off top spot in the Midland Football League Premier Division.

Newark had to beat County Hall, Skegness Town and Heather St John's before booking their place in the Vase's third round with victory over Rugby Town.


Team News

With the Maltby and Albion games called off, midfielder Jamie McGuire will finally commence his suspension after receiving a red card in the 1-1 draw with Penistone Church.
