Neil Mitchell must wish he was a betting man after Stourbridge and Moseley were yesterday drawn to face each other in the fifth round of the Powergen National Trophy.
Fireworks might be expected when they collide on Bonfire Night.
"I had said I ought to have a £10 wager on us drawing either Pertemps Bees or Moseley," said Mitchell, the director of rugby at Stourton.
"I just fancied it and you know it's going to happen.
"I can't stop smiling about it. It is a fixture to really look forward to. They will be trying to do the double away from home but we will be a lot stronger this time."
Last month Moseley beat Stourbridge 20- 7 in a National League Two match and, despite Moseley coach John Beale's hopes for a home fixture in the next round, he will be quietly confident as his side make a quick return to Stourton.
"Moseley are playing with an abundance of confidence at the moment. Every game they play their chests seem to push out more," said Mitchell. "It is as much a mental thing as physical but they will have a tough test against Esher this weekend."
Stourbridge who progressed to the fifth round after beating Rosslyn Park 39-25 on Saturday will have to wait and see if their loan signings Hesse Falatou and Roman Piotrowski are to be released by Bees' director of rugby Phil Maynard to play in the fixture.
Bees travel to Cleckheaton of National Three North when they enter the competition at the fifth round stage along with the other National One clubs.
Nevertheless Mitchell was heartened by his side's performance against Rosslyn which laid to rest the home hoodoo at Stourton. "Duncan Hughes kicked six out of eight which is more like what we expect although he still missed some from in front of the sticks.
"Steve Taylor had a very good game too." Cleckheaton, who play in National Three North, will be no pushovers for Bees on November 5. They ousted higher ranked Harrogate on Saturday fourth round and boast a powerful squad which includes two former England internationals in John Bentley and Scott Benton.
Bentley, the former British Lions winger, is also Cleckheaton's director of rugby while Benton, an international scrum-half, joined the West Yorkshire club midway through last season after he was released by Sale Sharks.
"It's not the tie we wanted," said Maynard.
"We wanted a home game, preferably against Harlequins, which would have been a real money-spinner, or a local derby."
Defeat Cleckheaton and the gods may yet grant him his wish but the obstacle posed by the Yorkshiremen remains significant.
"This is a nasty-looking tie. We are there to be shot down and you only have to look at the quality of players that Cleckheaton have to realise that they are not you average National Three side.
"Apart from John Bentley and Scott Benton, they've got Mark Billington, who played a lot of National One rugby with Otley, and John Dudley, my old mate from his days at Rotherham, so it's going to be a real scrap for us to get through to the next round."
