And Urchins will hope to get back to winning ways to give them a boost heading into their play-off semi-final on Wednesday.
A 1-0 defeat at lowly Harrow, who ensured their survival, last weekend left Jimmy McFarlane’s men with only one point from their last three games.

That came in their top-of-the-table stalemate with leaders Billericay, but Hornchurch’s 2-1 defeat at Wealdstone then allowed Blues to clinch the title last weekend.
MCFarlane has admitted his men are producing their worst form at the worst time of the season, but has stressed they are still only two games from promotion to Conference South.
A draw against relegated Leatherhead will ensure the runners-up spot ahead of Lowestoft, who visit Billericay, and then Urchins will wait to see who their opponents will be on Wednesday.
Wealdstone (72 points; home to Concord), Bury (72; at Tooting), Lewes (70; home to Harrow) and Hendon (69; at Aveley) are chasing the fourth and fifth places and Lewes are the only one of those teams that Hornchurch have managed to beat in the Premier Division this season.
Ryman Division 1N
Great Wakering v Romford
Boro are setting their sights on the big 6-0 at relegated Rovers.
Paul Martin’s men reached their points target for the season with a 1-0 win over Sudbury at Mill Field, thanks to a late strike from Jamie Dicks.
And if they end the season with another triumph, they will reach 60 points for 2011/12 — possibly moving up to ninth place in the final table.
Martin will shuffle his pack to ensure those who missed out last weekend get some game time at Burroughs Park.
And Boro will be looking to complete a double over Wakering, after captain Paul Clayton’s goal clinched a 1-0 success in December.
