Wroxham and Scole United will be praying the weather gods are shining on them this evening.

The Yachtsmen will attempt to stage their Norfolk Senior Cup quarter-final for a third time after back-to-back Tuesday postponements.

It is the only remaining last-eight tie to be played with Diss Town, Norwich United and Dereham Town having already booked their places in this season's semi-finals.

The hosts go into the fixture as clear favourites having not only home advantage in their favour. Stewart Larter's Ryman North play-off hopefuls ply their trade four tiers up the game's part-time pyramid than Almary Green Anglian Combination Division One Scole.

Wroxham warmed up for tonight's clash – which will see the winner entertain non-league Norwich on February 28 for a shot at reaching the Carrow Road final – by thumping 10-man Maldon & Tiptree 4-1 at the weekend. United beat Foulsham 3-0 in only their second fixture since the turn of the year. They sit fifth having played at least five games less than most of the sides around them.
