The top of the table clash in Isthmian League Premier Division may have fans salivating at the thought but Hornchurch boss Steve Morison is playing it cool.

The table-topping Urchins host second-placed Enfield Town at Bridge Avenue looking to extend their unbeaten start to the league season.

And while Hornchurch were idle on Saturday, their scheduled match at Concord Rangers called off early in the morning due to a waterlogged pitch, Enfield have played twice and been in scintillating form too, beating Hashtag United 6-3 on Saturday before a 4-1 win at Wingate & Finchley on Tuesday.

Morison is aware of the confidence the Towners will have but sees the game as just another step on the road to their ultimate goal.

He said: "They are all big games to be fair but they’ve had a couple of good results this week off the back of some poor results [in league and cup]. 

"They’ll be looking to add another victory to their week and obviously it's up to us to try and stop that. 

"We can watch the games on VEO and stuff like that and we will take what we can take [from that].

"That's what we’ve done with everyone we've played and everyone we’ve watched. 

"But then we often work and plan for the game and teams turn up at our place and do something completely different. 

"We'll see what comes but we need to make sure we're right first and foremost and then go from there. 

"It’s just the next one. We've had a decent start to this season and it’s just about the next one now and trying to carry that on and keep progressing.  

"We know our end goal and that's our focus. This is just the next step in that in that path so that’s what we'll concentrate on." 

Hornchurch's preparations for Enfield were disrupted due to the postponement on Canvey Island but only slightly.

And Morison was looking at it as a glass half full.

"It is what it is," said the boss. "Obviously we were all geared up to go down there but the game was cancelled in the morning so there is nothing you can do about it. 

"With the weather being the way it is, we just took the opportunity to recuperate and had we played on Saturday, I was going to give them Tuesday off anyway. 

"But we’ve got people back that we didn’t have [at Concord] so I’ll take the positives from it."
