Swindon Sunday league Knockout Cup Final
AFC Mannington v DPR FC
This promises to be a very interesting match up. Mannington finished as runners-up in Division 1, three points behind FC Walcot. They've only suffered three league defeats all season and have clocked up 60 goals in 12 games, conceding just 17. DPR are currently second in Division 2 but have three game sin hand on leaders Gorsehill Borough whilst also having three games in hand. They too are prolific scorers with 50 in 12 games, conceding only 13. They have only lost once in the league this season and have already knocked FC Walcot out of the Cup.

The Goats take on 116Exiles for the second time in under a week. Yes, that's right, under a week. The sides met just a couple of days ago, Tuesday evening, at the Exiles place. Caversham went down 3-1, a result that leaves The Exiles just a point behind The Goats but with a colossal 6 games in hand. Exile shave hit some form lately, the win over Caversham was their third on the bounce. This increases to four if you count the Home Walkover awarded for the Rose & Thistle game scheduled for this Thursday. Tuesday's result was also Caversham's first defeat in four, so they will want to put that behind them and try to move up a congested mid-table. Sixth-placed Wayback are only 4 points ahead of The Goats.

Caversham United Women
United's women have a re-run of the Berks & Bucks Cup Final this Sunday as they welcome Penn & Tylers Green to The Rec. A win for The Goats could see them leapfrog Penn and possibly take them to fourth spot (depending upon Tilehurst's result). The sides have met twice before this season. The reverse league game at French School Meadows ended in a 4-1 victory for the home side thanks largely to a Henna Hussain hat-trick. In the Cup Final a few weeks back, Penn ran out 3-0 winners (Merritt Award), executing a superb game plan. Two goals from Sasha Smith and a cracker from Ellie Ludgate-Williams were too much for The Goats. It was a great game to watch and Sunday should also be a really good game. It will be interesting to see what style both teams adopt now that they are both familiar with each other's strengths and weaknesses.
