Merthyr Town are focused on FA Trophy progress after their scheduled Southern League fixture on Cornwall this afternoon was called off.
The Martyrs were due to play Truro City away, but heavy rain left their pitch unplayable and the clash will be rearranged.
Now player-manager Gavin Williams and his players turn to their Buildbase FA Trophy replay against Cinderford Town at the MetCoaches Stadium in Merthyr Tydfil on Tuesday.
The winners of that first qualifying round tie will be at home against Isthmian League Premier club Potters Bar Town next Saturday.
Paul Michel, a former player-manager of home town club Risca United and Haverfordwest County, is the man in charge of Cinderford Town. Michell is head of physical education at Abersychan Comprehensive School, Pontypool.

His squad includes a number of players with Welsh links including midfield ball-winner Ben Watkins, who has played for the Martyrs and Cardiff City youth.
Liam Angel (ex-Wales under-19, Cardiff City and Newport County), Logan Bowkett (Newport and Barry Town United) and assistant manager Andrew Smith (Welsh Schools, Newport, Monmouth Town) also have Welsh connections.
Merthyr have four players who used to be with Cinderford – goalkeepers Alex Harris and Cameron Clarke, Gethyn Hill and Lewis Binns.
The Martyrs earned a 2-2 draw at Cinderford in the first game with Ian Traylor and Gethyn Hill the scorers. Ethan Moore and Jarred Welch replied.
Potters Bar Town will be watching for the replay result with great interest. The Hertfordshire team will face a near 400-miles round trip to South Wales if Merthyr defeat fellow BetVictor Southern League team Cinderford.
Ben Ward-Cochrane and Josh Hutchinson scored the goals for Potters Bar in their 2-1 first qualifying round win at Heybridge Swifts.
There is £3,000 prize money available for the winners of Merthyr/Cinderford v Potters Bar.
