UEL face their first game in three weeks at the Walthamstow Sports centre, after their last league and cup fixtures were postponed and moved. The East Londoners have been working hard in training to force through a place in the last 16.

Their hard work and determination will hopefully allow them to overcome an inform SOAS team.

The first round of the cup ended in a walkover as Kingston University Men’s 2nd failed to turn up to the game. If UEL are successful, they will be one step closer to latter stages of the tournament.

This will be SOAS’s first game in the cup as they got a bye into the round of 32. Their start to the league campaign has been indifferent, playing two winning one and losing one. SOAS currently sit fifth out of six teams in the South Eastern 4B league where UEL were undefeated last season.

UEL will be confident of reaching the last 16 as they are back to full strength with Marco Eng available. The East London side have clearly missed him and will be a strong addition in the upcoming game.
