Hockey: Holders Cannock confront Lewes
Tuesday 19 January 1999
Reading's tie against Canterbury at Sonning Lane could be an exciting, high-scoring affair, but first Reading have to dispose of Loughborough Students in their postponed fifth-round tie.
The fourth game of the ties, to be played on Sunday 28 February, will be a rerun of the 1994 final, between Old Loughtonians and Teddington. Relishing the tie at Southgate, Hounslow's manager, Paul King, said: "We have a new air of confidence in the side and I really think we could go through."
With the restart of the regional leagues after the mid-season break Ipswich, held to a 2-2 draw at Bishop's Stortford, moved one point ahead of Peterborough Town, who crashed 5-1 at Hitchin to Blueharts. In the north, Formby held on to top spot with a 3-2 win against Neston, as did Robinsons in the west, through a 2-2 draw at Weston-super-Mare.
The DTZ leaders, Edgbaston, returned to form with a 6-1 win over Hampton in Arden and are six points clear of Harborne. In the south, Fareham opened up a six-point lead by beating Bournemouth 4-0. However, their nearest rivals, Beckenham, have a game in hand.
EHA CUP Sixth round draw: Cannock v Lewes; Old Loughtonians v Teddington; Reading or Loughborough Students v Canterbury; Southgate v Hounslow.
