Tomorrow evening sees the first team make the trip to AFC Wimbledon for the semi final of the London Senior Cup, in what is the club's final chance of silverware this season. Supporters are reminded that admission to the game is just £5 for adults and concessions, and free for under 16's. Those who are under 16 will need to ensure that they have some proof of age with them.

Gary McCann made it clear on Saturday where his priorities lay, as he rested a number of first choice players for the game against Horsham, all of whom are expected to be in the starting line-up at Kingsmeadow.

AFC Wimbledon reached the final last season, where they lost on penalties to Metropolitan Police following a pulsating 4-4 draw. Their scorers that night were Danny Kedwell, Luke Moore, Elliot Godfrey and Ricky Wellard.

In reaching the semi final this season, the Wombles have seen off the challenges of Dulwich Hamlet (3-2 with Mark Nwokeji, Callun Dunne and Jon Main scoring), and Beckenham Town (4-3 with Lee Minshull, Harry Knock and Jerson Dos Santos scoring, the latter with a brace).

Our opponents secured their place in the Conference National play-offs on Saturday with a 4-0 win at Histon, with both Kedwell and Moore scoring two goals apiece, and they just have home games against Mansfield Town and Grimsby Town, along with a trip to Forest Green Rovers left to play before they embark on the play-off campaign.

This will be the 10th meeting between the two clubs. We haven't met the Wombles since they won promotion from the Ryman League in 2008, since when they have continued to progress through the leagues under the excellent leadership of Terry Brown.

Kick off at Kingsmeadow will be at 7.45pm, and the game will continue into extra-time and penalties if required. The winners will face Wingate & Finchley in the final, which is due to be played on Tuesday 10th May at Tooting & Mitcham United's ground.
