Rivals hit the road
Ryman Premier Division
Wealdstone v Hornchurch
Urchins remain two points adrift of table-topping Billericay in the race for the title.

Jimmy McFarlane’s men could not close the gap when the two sides met at Bridge Avenue on Bank Holiday Monday, battling to a goalless draw in front of a crowd of 1,095.
And with only three matches remaining, it would appear that time is running out for Urchins in their bid for automatic promotion.
- 1 Four people taken to hospital after Romford town centre incident
- 2 East London police officer charged with rape
- 3 Brentwood deaths: Teen charged with double murder to appear in court
- 4 Upminster chef named best in the country with award
- 5 ATMs to be reinstalled in shopping mall in 'more prominent location'
- 6 Liverpool Street to Shenfield line suspended as person hit by train

- 8 Romford location ‘encapsulates Britain’ in soon to premiere horror movie
- 9 Mourners to host vigil in Harold Hill park for lost teenage boys

Honours finished even when Wealdstone visited Bridge Avenue in September, as Richard Jolly cancelled out Lewis Smith’s strike.
But Hornchurch’s away form has been exceptional all season and they go in search of a 16th league victory on the road this weekend.
They visit Harrow next weekend, before closing their campaign with a home match against Leatherhead.
Billericay, meanwhile, entertain East Thurrock this weekend and visit Margate before their season finale against Lowestoft.
Ryman Division 1N
Needham Market v Romford
Boro make the long trip to Suffolk to take on high-flying Needham Market this weekend.
Manager Paul Martin was disappointed with his side’s Easter return of a single point, from a 2-2 home draw with Grays.
Below-par Boro slumped to a 3-1 defeat at lowly Cheshunt on Saturday and looked on course for another reverse as Grays moved 2-0 up at Mill Field.
But goalscoring heroes Jack Barry and Kurt Smith added to their respective tallies in the final eight minutes to salvage a share of the spoils and take Boro to within three points of Martin’s target of 56, with three games remaining.
