Jimmy McFarlane’s men have won just two games out of seven on their own turf so far this season, which is in complete contrast to their excellent away form.

Lewis Smith’s fourth goal of the season clinched a 1-0 win at East Thurrock last weekend, Hornchurch’s fifth success in six away games.

McFarlane said: “We can’t keep saying we’ve been unlucky when we lose at home.

“It’ll be a tough one. They were always going to turn it around and it will be a good test for us.”

Ryman Division 1N

Romford v Ware

Boro will be looking to bounce back from a bad week as they welcome basement boys Ware to Mill Field.

Paul Martin’s men crashed out of the FA Trophy after a disappointing 4-1 defeat at Bedfont.

And they went down by the same margin against Ryman Division One North rivals Tilbury in midweek.

Kurt Smith netted in both games, but is a doubt with a thigh strain.

Martin said: “We’ll take it on the chin and hope to bounce back against Ware. We owe the fans a few results.”
