Takeley will do battle with Ongar on Saturday after last weekend's game was postponed.

The tie looked like it would survive after a pitch inspection at 11.30am, however a downpour of icy rain meant the pitch surface became too dangerous, so the game was rescheduled for this weekend.

It is a replay of last year's final which Takeley won 1-0 and promises to be an exciting clash at Station Road.

Manger Don Watters said: "I watched them play in last season's final and they looked a good side.

"I hope on the day our players are good enough to do it, but we won't take them lightly."

Another fixture change is the Essex Junior Cup tie between Takeley FC Reserves and Runwell Hospital, due to be played next Saturday.
