Ben Herd should make a return to the St Albans City side when they face Watford at Clarence Park in the semi-final of the Herts Senior Cup.
The full-back has missed the last few weeks with a troublesome hamstring injury but has managed the last couple of training sessions and is expected to at least be on the bench.
Clovis Kamdjo is also back after a spell away from the club on compassionate leave but David Noble will definitely miss out.
Manager Ian Allinson has long said that this trophy is a priority for him and his team but even though the Premier League outfit will pose a stern test, he is ready for the challenge.
Speaking to the Herts Ad he said: “We had them watched in the last round against Bishop’s Stortford and they were totally in control.
You may also want to watch:
“They kept the ball really well and if we are not on our game we will be in trouble.
“But this is a great opportunity for us, especially at home.”
