The Yeltz – who are now just two wins from a Wembley final – will travel to Barnet for their quarter-final tie on Saturday, February 29.

Paul Smith's charges have already overcome the Bees' National League Premier rivals FC Halifax Town and Maidenhead United to reach this stage of the competition. Jamie Molyneux got the only goal of the game in their famous win over the third-placed Shaymen on Saturday.

Barnet, who were in the Football League as recently as 2018 and play at the 6,500-capacity Hive Stadium, are currently 13th in the top flight of non-league football – but just four points outside the play-off places.

The Yeltz play three divisions below them in Southern Central One and travel to Daventry Town in their next league game tonight (7.45pm).
