But after Leicester under-23s pulled out of the competition, both clubs enter the group stage.

A statement on the Hawks website said: ‘Havant and Waterlooville can regrettably announce that due to a floodlighting issue at Westleigh Park tonight’s Hampshire Senior Cup tie with Portsmouth has been postponed. 

‘The game has been rescheduled by the Hampshire FA for Monday, October 8, kick-off at 19:45.’

Kenny Jackett’s men have had League One games against Rotherham and Southend postponed this term because of Victorious Festival and international call-ups respectively.

Pompey were scheduled to travel to Bury last Saturday but the Shakers’ expulsion from the Football League meant that fixture was scrapped.
