The Flow Champions Cup will resume today with the top six premier league teams bowing into action after receiving automatic byes past the first round.

The second round will feature five all-premier league clashes, with the most anticipated being that third-place premiership team Waterhouse hosting eight-place August Town at Drewsland at 5 p.m.

The honours has been shared between the teams in their two previous meetings this season, with Waterhouse coming away 4-1 winners in their first-round premier league encounter, while August Town took the second round meeting 1-0.

Good football

Waterhouse's manager, Keith Sailsman, promised some good football.

"We take the game very seriously because we aspire to win the championship," said Sailsman. "Our players are focused to take it to the next level, so you will see some good football."

Marlon Small, manager of August Town said:"It is a win-win game, so we have to give it our all," said Small. "Waterhouse normally give us a torrid time down there so we are going there, expecting a very tough game; but we are going to stay competitive and try and sneak away with a win."
