AFC Sudbury carry Suffolk's hopes into the third round of the FA Vase tomorrow.

They are at home to Hanwell, who play in the Spartan South Midlands League are come from Perivale in Middlesex.

Keith Martin's side, who look as though they will battle for the Jewson League Premier Division title with Wroxham, are capable of having another long run in this prestigious competition.

They will start favourites to beat Hanwell and a big crowd should gather at Brundon Lane to see if the Suffolk team can make progress.

Six other Jewson League sides are still left in the Vase with 1994 winners Diss Town travelling to play Milton Keynes. One side is bound to make the next round as Lowestoft Town are at home to Norwich United. Last season Tiptree United reached the final at Villa Park.

In the Metaltec SIL, Bramford United can capitalise on last Saturday's win over Achilles and move further away from the foot of the table.

They are at home to a side in free-fall, Woodbridge Athletic. Bottom-of-the-table Leiston St Margaret's need to start collecting points soon if they are to stand a serious chance of making up ground.

But they will find life tough against a Grundisburgh side, who may not be the side they were but can still be quite a threat. Ace striker Martin Cotton's goal power has been missed in recent weeks while he has been on the injured list.

Leaders Walsham-le-Willows will certainly not have things all their own way at Stonham Aspal, with their main rivals Ipswich Athletic and East Bergholt waiting for any slip-up.

Athletic are at home to Westerfield, but Bergholt's match at Haughley has been called off because of county cup commitments.
