Two games scheduled for March 8th

Should Hereford United defeat Northwich in the Conference Cup next Tuesday, they will face a Tuesday trip to Accrington Stanley in the next round. However it is uncertain when that game would be played.

On the Official Stanley site the fixture is listed for March 8th. However Hereford United have a Conference game at Tamworth that evening which is expected go ahead.

The problem arises when to play this Conference Cup game should it be needed.

Tuesday evenings are already taken up with fixtures. The list is below:

Feb 22nd Northwich Home Conference Cup
Mar 1st Kington Town Home Herefordshire Cup
Mar 8th Tamworth Away Conference
Mar 15th Carlisle Home Conference
Mar 22nd Morecambe Away Conference
Mar 28th Northwich Home Conference (Easter Monday 3pm)

So there is little space in March. It could be worse should a replay be required after the FA Trophy game with Eastwood. That would take place on March 1st which would mean postponing the Kington game.

The sixth round of the FA Trophy takes place on March 19th and, assuming Hereford United are in the draw, the home game against Crawley Town will need to be moved.

Maybe Hereford United should "do a Barnet" and put out a very reserve team next Tuesday and let Northwich win the Conference Cup game.
