KENT SENIOR CUP PREVIEW | Welling United v Sittingbourne

Welling United begin their Kent Senior Cup campaign with a second-round clash with Sittingbourne at Park View Road on Tuesday evening (7.45pm).

The cup clash will give Warren Feeney the opportunity to give vital minutes to those players who have been waiting for starting opportunities of late, while Amadou Kassarate could make his return to action having sat out of the last three outings due to suspension.

THE OPPOSITION
The Brickies ply their trade in the Isthmian League South East Division and currently lie in 13th position with four wins, four draws and six defeats from their 14 league outings, so far, coming into the game without a win in their last six.

Sittingbourne’s place in the second round came as a result of Sevenoaks Town pulling out of the competition on the eve of their first-round tie which was due to take place in September, due to their involvement in the Emirates FA Cup.

CUP HISTORY
The Wings have lifted the Kent Senior Cup on three occasions, with the last success coming in 2009, with the other two final victories coming in 1986 and 1999.

Sittingbourne, meanwhile, have won the competition five times, most recently in 2010. Their other successes came in 1902, 1929, 1930 and 1958.

Welling made it to the semi-final stage last season, losing on penalties to eventual winners Dartford.

The Brickies fell at the first hurdle last term, losing on penalties to VCD Athletic.
