A much changed team, with players being rested for Saturday’s league game, took to the field to play in the second landlords v tenants derby of the season. Balham won the previous encounter in the league but this time, in the league cup, it was the landlords who won through to the next round. Balham had started brightly and took the lead on sixteen minutes when Thomas Fosse scored with a left foot banger from the edge of the box. Colliers Wood equalised later in the half though and then, soon afterwards, took the lead. The second half was an even affair but a third goal for Wood almost certainly killed the tie for Balham and a fourth from the penalty spot, late on, put the final nail in the coffin.
