Potton United's footballers face their biggest match of the season this Saturday.
The Royals have home advantage in the FA Carlsberg Vase fourth round.
AFC Totton are the visitors and Potton will be hoping to reach the fifth round for the first time since 1990 when they went out 1-0 to Billericay.
A fine second-half performance from the Royals secured three valuable league points against mid-table Holbeach on Saturday in a 4-1 win.
Potton took an 11th minute lead when an 18-yard shot from Mark Bryant found its way through a crowded penalty area and into the net courtesy of a defender's leg.
The remainder of the half was fairly even until Omar Joof equalised for the visitors after 36 minutes.

Potton stepped up a gear after the break and showed what excellent football they can play.
A 25-yard free-kick from Lee Allinson grabbed the lead again and Steve Kuhne's head got on the end of a Paul Donnelly cross to make the score 3-1 on the hour.
Allinson scored his second in the 73rd minute to give Potton the convincing win.
