“It’s a dangerous time to play them,” said Urchins boss Jimmy McFarlane.

“They will be like a wounded animal, but the way we’re playing, we shouldn’t fear anybody. We’re looking forward to it.”

Aaron Gayle is rated as a ‘possible’ for tonight’s action, having missed Saturday’s clash with Wingate, but Dave McSweeney is out with a groin strain.

Ryman Division 1N

Chatham Town v Romford

Boro tasted league defeat for only the second time this season when going down 1-0 at Enfield Town on Saturday.

Paul Martin’s men had gone seven games unbeaten since their opening-day reverse at Harlow, with plenty of goals scored and conceded along the way.

And they will be keen to get back on the points trail as they face new boys Chatham, who have lost three of their last four league and cup matches.

From M2: Exit junction 3 and follow directions for Chatham & Town Centre. You will pass a Homebase and Toys ‘R’ Us on the left.
