Oldies but goodies
Connecting them in series would work just fine.
Depending on network load you might run into capacity problems between the switches.
It is smart to make an aggregated bundle of 2 ports between the switches.
This would remove the single port link bottleneck.
You could do this with the SFP ports but the price for the optics will probably be a bit high.
I presume the 3Coms will use HP coded optics should you choose to pursue this further.
Personally I would just sacrifice 2 regular ports for this and be done with it.
Or you could get a new 48 port switch. These days they barely cost any money at all.
EG: HPE 1920S 48G, Zyxel 1920-48, Netgear GS748T or D-Link DGS1210-48
