The Spartan South Midlands League Division One Cup Semi-Finals take place on Tuesday evening. Forde Park see's Langford (currently 8th in the table) take on Hatfield Town (18th) in what should be a closer game than the two teams respective league positions currently are. Langford have recently waved goodbye and good luck to top scorer Pat Daly who has signed for Evo Stik Southern League Division One (Central) side Bedford Town and also lost a few key players to long term injuries including Joe Anderson.

Hatfield Town have improved over the last month winning four of their last six games in league and cup with Darren O'Brien in good form up front - He was joined by Stefan Saywell in attack on Saturday who scored twice in their 4-1 home win over Bedford FC. He has scored many goals in the Hertfordshire Senior County League Division One for AFC Hatfield. 

It should definately be close than the league fixture at The Gosling Stadium in October when Langford ran out 0-7 winners with Daly scoring four times. 

The home side will be holding a collection for Joe Anderson who recently suffered a ruptured patella whilst playing - He is out injured for a number of months and has had to miss work as well so any money collected will certainly help him in many ways. 

In the second game Wodson Park travel to 'fortress Rothamstead Park' to face current league leader's Harpenden Town. Town have an amazing record of eleven wins in eleven league games scoring 43 times and letting in just 10 goals. In Cup games they have drawn 2-2 in an early season game against Tring Athletic in the Herts Charity Shield followed by a 1-3 defeat against Essex Senior League sid Ilford and a 3-2 win over Broadfields United in the D1C. Wodson are sixth in the league and draw 2-2 at Kensington Borough on Saturday. They have a good away record of 8 wins, 2 draws and 3 defeats in their league games - In cup games they have won twice in two games away from home in a 1-3 victory at Winslow United in the D1C and a 2-7 win over Herts Senior County Division One side Sarratt in the Herts Senior Centenary Trophy.
