The Crow Lane club haven’t won away from home in the London Two North East since February 11 when they defeated Holt 15-10

Romford & Gidea Park will aim to secure a third consecutive victory in the London Two North East on Saturday when they travel to Epping Upper Clapton.

The Crow Lane club finished 2017 with an impressive 43-15 success at home to Harlow on December 16.

It placed Park sixth in the table heading into the New Year with 28 points from their 11 fixtures to date.

Steve Barfoot and Jordan Wigham’s team are nine points off fifth-placed Harlow, but do have a game in hand over their Essex rivals after their December 9 clash at Cantabrigian was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

If Romford are to move up the table, they will have to break their duck away from home this season.

Park have yet to taste success on the road, losing at Harlow (35-15), Sudbury (57-15), Wanstead (57-10) and Norwich (65-19) in the first half of the campaign.

But with Epping Upper Clapton eighth in the table with only five victories to their name this term, Romford will hope to earn some away reward this weekend.

Having trained over the festive period, Park should be well prepared for what is in store at Upland Road.
