TWO fixtures involving Isle of Wight Wessex League teams, scheduled for tonight (Tuesday), have been declared as going ahead, following late pitch inspections.

The Isle of Wight Senior (Gold) Cup resumes at Westwood Park, with a mouthwatering third round tie in the competition between hosts Wessex League high flyers Cowes Sports and Island League Division 1 leaders Whitecroft and Barton Sports.

Many believe this could be a potential banana skin for the cup holders, Cowes Sports, who were hammered 4-0 at home against Moneyfields on Saturday.

Meanwhile, W&B have been scoring for fun — crushing East Cowes Sports 8-0 and High Park 10-1 in their past two league games.  

Also, Newport play away to Ringwood Town in Division 1 of the Wessex League, laying sixth off the bottom, but with a number of games in hand on sides around them.

If Port win, they will close the gap to four points on 11th place Ringwood with an incredible ten games in hand on them.

Both matches kick-off at 7.30pm.
