Bath City (13th) v Hornchurch (15th)
Urchins head west to the Roman city of Bath looking to bounce back from another disappointment at home.

Only goal difference separates the sides at present but Urchins will travel with some confidence, having collected seven points on the road so far.

Ryman Division 1N
Harlow (18th) v Romford (9th)
Romford do appear to enjoy an away day.
Since defeat at Thamesmead in their first away fixture of the season, Paul Martin’s men have taken 10 out of a possible 12 points.
They romped to a 6-3 win at Sudbury last weekend, where Ryan Imbert scored what is believed to be the club’s first hat-trick since their promotion to the Ryman League.
Chris Barry and George Tubey netted trebles in a 6-0 success at Barkingside in April 2009, as Boro clinched the Essex Senior League title.
And Imbert joined that list in Suffolk, where Paul Clayton, Nick Reynolds and Tom Richardson were also on target.
