Attention turns to the Portsmouth Senior Cup as Fleetlands are the visitors to PO3 for the Second Round clash.
It will be the second time the sides have met this term after the 1-1 friendly in PO3 back in July. Joe Johnson’s opener was cancelled out late on by Leigh Shadbolt’s goal.
Fleetlands were just about to embark on their first campaign as a step-five club when they were last at the PMC Stadium, and since, have settled in nicely in Division One.
Fleetlands sit 10th in Division One with 24 points on the board from their opening 15 league fixtures so far. Their most recent result was a 3-1 victory at Romsey Town on Saturday. Amongst the goalscorers was former Baffins forward Dale Mason, who is unavailable to face his former club on Tuesday.
One player who could feature, though, is midfielder Callum Dart who left Baffins to join Hayling United before joining the Gosport-based team, linking up with his cousin Dan Greenwood who is the Fleetlands boss.
Baffins head into Tuesday evening's match aiming to return to winning ways after blowing a three-goal lead at Hamble Club on Saturday. Miles Everett, Tom Vincent and Jason Parish were all on target in the first interval, but the hosts ran out the eventual winners.
Tickets for the Second Round tie can only be purchased on the turnstiles on Tuesday, prices: £5 adults, £4 concessions (OAPs and over-16s), and under-16s are admitted free of charge.
The £10 deal is available for this match which includes entry, a copy of the special edition Armistice Day programme - re-issued from last week's postponed fixture - and curry sauce and chips.
