Brentwood captain Joe Buttleman wants revenge on Essex Premier Division outfit Upminster this weekend.

Buttleman and his team-mates play host to league strugglers Upminster tomorrow (Saturday) and are hoping to get back at them for early season fortunes.

“We certainly owe them one, they beat us twice this year, once in the league cup and at their place in the league,” he said.

“We’re looking to settle that score.

“They have beaten us twice, but we have a good record over them in the last five to six years, so we’re confident.”

The skipper brushed aside any concern his side may have about Upminster having there number this season.

“I’m not too concerned about them as a team, I’m more concerned if we show up as a team and we have a few strong individual performances, then we should get on the right side of the result,” Buttleman admitted.

“We feel we owe them and we will be confident of a win, but it’s a tough league this season, so we won’t be taking them lightly.”

Brentwood will still be without key batsmen Guy Balmford and he could be out for the rest of the season.

“Guy looks like he could be out for the season, although hopefully he can make it back for the last two games.

“We’re fairly lucky to have a strong squad and everyone else is available and I will pick the team baring in mind the weather.”

Buttleman admits his side are still ‘confident’ in their battle for the title against Wanstead.

“It’s going to be tough, but we will be doing everything we can to put Wanstead under pressure.

“We still have to play them and are still confident of chasing them down.”

Brentwood’s winning form was stunted by their match against rivals Shenfield being abandoned due to rain and Buttleman admits frustration.

“It’s frustrating, but Wanstead and Chelmsford’s game was called off as well.

“I think that would have been one of Wanstead’s biggest challenges.”

Harold Wood travel away to Division One leaders Hadleigh this weekend after their fixture at home to Belhus was called off last weekend.
