There’s a fourth attempt to get this one played and although we’ve been here before, the weather really does look as if it will finally let us get on! With both sides having played at the weekend, our hosts enter the tie on the back of a 2-1 home defeat at the hands of play off place chasing rivals, AFC Totton while Marine returned home from Dorchester Town victorious, following an hugely exciting 4-3 result at the Avenue Stadium.
