TOWN Field will host one of its biggest hockey matches for years on Sunday (noon) as Doncaster bid to reach the Men’s National Cup final for the first time in their history.

Leigh Hodgson’s Northern Conference outfit face Cannock for a place in the game’s showpiece final in May.

Doncaster have beaten Ben Rhydding, Preston, Oxton and Chelmsford to reach the last four.

But they will go into this weekend’s eagerly anticipated clash on the back of two league defeats after their promotion push hit the buffers.

Sheffield Hallam defeated Doncaster 3-0 earlier this month, and that was followed by a disappointing 5-3 home reverse to struggling Barford Tigers on Sunday.

Hodgson’s men will be looking to bounce back in the best way possible by reaching their first ever national cup final.

Opponents Cannock currently lie eighth of ten in the Premier Division.Hampstead & Westminster meet Beeston in the other semi-final.
