A busy weekend of league and cup hockey includes the top four Premier sides playing each other today, with second-placed Reading visiting Cannock and the leaders, Old Loughtonians, travelling to fourth-placed Southgate.

At the bottom, Havant, with no points, entertain Guildford, who last weekend came from behind to beat Reading 5-3.

Havant's Premiership survival could rest on the outcome of tomorrow's cup game, when Beeston visit Yeovil and Sherborne. If his side loses, the Yeovil captain, Rob Hill, the former Great Britain and Havant penalty corner specialist, could return to help his old club fight for survival.

Since Hill's successor, Callum Giles, left for the Dutch club HGM at the beginning of the season, Havant have struggled. Hill's return could be crucial.
