THE Isuzu FA Vase round-of-16 tie between Stourport Swifts and Worcester City will be a sell-out on Saturday afternoon, but will the rain ruin the party?

It has been a wet week in Worcestershire and the rain is forecast to continue into Friday and the early hours of Saturday morning in and around the Stourport area in the build-up to the big game.

1900 supporters will be in attendance at Walshes Meadow - a new record for a Stourport game - as City and Swifts play for a spot in the quarter-finals of the competition.

But the rain is not helping matters. Officials at Stourport say the game will be given every chance to go ahead and no decision will be made until the day of the game (Saturday).

Should the game be postponed, it is not yet clear whether the tie would be replayed mid-week or on a following weekend.

Fixtures are already stacking up for City in particular. They currently have four games in hand over the majority of the Hellenic League Premier, where they are top on goal difference. 

Swifts are also flying high in the Midland Football League Premier, occupying the final play-off spot as it stands. Both sides will have hopes of promotion - more of a minimum requirement for City - and so finding a new date for the cup tie would be difficult.
