    woking over time/woking late

    Teachers,

    When you are saying that you have to work extra hours today than your usual woking hours, can you say like:

    I have to work over time./I have to work over time tonight.
    I have to work late./I have to work late tonight.

    If both are possible, which is more commonly used.

    Please help me, thank you.

    Both are fine and both are commonly used. Note: 'overtime' is one word.
