East Premier A

Crostyx v Havering

Having seen their five-game winning streak brought to an end by second-placed Bedford last Sunday, Havering will be keen to start again against lowly Crostyx at the Peter May Sports Centre.

Gaz Ingram and Murray Yeoman netted in a hard-fought 2-1 win when the sides met at Campion earlier in the season.

And Ingram added three more to his tally in the 4-3 win over Cambridge University and 3-2 defeat against Bedford in last week’s double-header.

Division 1

Upminster v Cambridge City II

Inconsistent Upminster face a crunch clash at Coopers.

Nick Payne’s men started the season with four defeats in their first five, then went eight games unbeaten around the turn of the year.

Three successive defeats followed, before last weekend’s 5-3 triumph at Felixstowe.

Another victory this weekend could lift them four places to fourth, but defeat will have them looking over their shoulders again at the bottom three.

Division 4SE

Brentwood II v Romford

Convincing wins over Upminster (5-0) and Witham (8-0) will have given Romford heart for their trip to second-placed Brentwood.

Honours finished even at 2-2 when the sides met at Robert Clack in early November, but James Hibbard’s men might be confident of improving on that and upsetting their hosts title hopes.
