HINTON boss Steve Cuss insists a semi-final showdown with Pegasus Juniors is the talk of their dressing room.

Cuss is relishing next month's HFA County Challenge Cup home clash with Chris Hyde's Pegasus.

He is also excited about coming face to face with former Hinton duo Andy Mowen and Tom Dawson.

“A lot of the Hinton lads were hoping to get Pegasus in the cup semi-final," said Cuss.

Mowen and Dawson both used to play for Hinton and now turn out for Pegasus in the West MidlandsLeague Premier Division.

Cuss said: “There is a close bond between the teams and I am sure there will be as much banter off the pitch as there is on it.”

He said that to reach the cup final would be a huge achievement.

And Cuss thinks that having home advantage in the semi-final could be quite important for Hinton.

He said: “We are the lowest ranked side left in the cup and a few eyebrows would be raised if we beat Pegasus."

Hinton have been in transition this season, said Cuss, and are mid-table in the Herefordshire League Premier Division.

Cuss added: “We’ve had a lot of changes this year and I am taking one game at a time.

“We’ve got to concentrate on this tie - not thinking about the final or a match against Hereford United."
