The game kicks off at the Green Elephants Stadium at 7.30pm.

The Hillians will be looking to put Saturday’s 7-0 defeat to Ashford United behind them as they seek to progress into the knockout stages of this cup competition; if the U’s win – they face Corinthian Casuals in the next round, if the Hillians win – both sides will be level on points with Hill yet to play Chichester City.

Lovett said: "It's another tough game v Hastings who are a very good footballing side and yes I will give other players a chance to prove themselves and fight for the shirt."
