CHELMSFORD City look to take one final step on the road to the Essex Senior Cup final against Coca-Cola Football League One side Colchester United tonight.

The Clarets squad is down to its bare bones after the weekend's exertions at home to Dorchester Town, where Chris Duffy was named as a substitute despite nursing a broken leg.

Two-goal hero Sam Sloma is also unavailable for the Clarets having been cup-tied in his time with Grays Athletic, leaving the management team with a selection headache for this final four clash.

City will hope reduced admission charges at Melbourne will attract additional supporters to cheer them on their way to another lengthy run in this season's County Cup, the match benefitting from special reductions at the turnstiles.
