Hockey: Woking keen on another scalp

THERE IS much uncertainty concerning the make-up of the fifth round of the EHA men's and women's cup draws following the postponement of a number of fourth round games. But if replays go according to form, the highlight of the fifth round ties will be the visit of women's Premier League leaders Ipswich to last year's Cup winners, Clifton Scottish Life. First, however, Clifton have to overcome South League leaders Dulwich.

Giant-killers Woking, who accounted for Premier Division Sutton Coldfield last Sunday and are on maximum points at the top of Division Two, will relish the chance of another scalp with the visit of First Division Bradford.

In the men's competition, last season's Cup and League winners Cannock, providing they overcome Harrogate, have another home tie against junior opposition.

Old Georgians, who struck 16 goals in their League game against Camberley - with Gary Notton (6) and Mahmood Bhatti (4) doing the bulk of the damage - are the visitors. Along with Epsom, Old Georgians have a 100 per cent record at the top of the Surrey Hampshire South League.

Old Cranleighans, who defeated Premier League Bourn-ville in the shock of the fourth round, have another home tie against EHL Division One leaders Lewes.

EHA FIFTH ROUND CUP DRAWS: Men: Cannock or Harrogate v Old Georgians; Canterbury v Sheffield or East Grinstead; Hounslow or Norton v Brooklands; Old Cranleighans v Lewes; Old Loughtonians v Doncaster; Reading v Bowdon or Loughborough Students; Southgate v Northampton Saints; Teddington v Wimbledon. (ties to be played on 17 January).

Women: Aldridge v Olton Terraquest; Billingham or Eastbourne v Fyffes Leicester or Sheffield; Canterbury v Doncaster; Chelmsford v Loughborough Students; Dulwich or Clifton Scottish Life v Ipswich; Ealing v Blackburn Northern or Slough; Hightown or Sherwood v Tulse Hill; Woking v Bradford. (ties to be played on 14 February).
