Urchins visit leaders, Boro home again

Ryman Premier

Sutton v Hornchurch

A tough trip to Gander Green Lane awaits Urchins tonight as they take on the leaders.

Hornchurch had to settle for a point against second-placed Bury at Bridge Avenue on Saturday, thanks to Duane Jackman’s 80th-minute header after returning to the club from Bishop’s Stortford.

But Tommy Black saw red in injury time, after having a penalty appeal turned down, as Urchins were left four points off a play-off place in eighth.

Sutton’s 2-0 win over Cray did Jimmy McFarlane’s men a favour, but they will be looking for a fourth successive victory to strengthen their position at the head of the table.

Ryman Division 1N

Romford v Redbridge

Having returned to winning ways with a 3-0 success over Ware, Boro will look to make it back-to-back home victories as Motormen visit Mill Field.

Kurt Smith returned from injury to score a cracker at the weekend, as Paul Martin’s men snapped a four-game losing streak, and Petrit Elbi netted his first goal since rejoining the club.

Elbi used to score at regular intervals for tonight’s visitors a few years back, but Martin may shuffle his strikers to keep everyone as fresh as possible.

After four successive home fixtures, Boro face games at Rookery Hill against Grays and East Thurrock in the space of four days, and Martin will be hoping confidence remains high in the camp.
