Gavin Wary of Cray Threat

Enfield Town have the chance to leapfrog  Chatham and move into second in the league  on goal difference tomorrow, Friday, when we end 2023 with a visit to Cray Wanderers in the second of our three holiday fixtures (ko 7.45).

Matches between the two sides often produce plenty of goals but Gavin Macpherson believes the task on Cray’s artificial pitch at Bromley could seriously test his players.

 Cray had their Boxing Day game against Margate abandoned late on because of a serious head injury to Yahya Bamba but have managed to play their way out of the bottom three in recent weeks.

In fact they haven’t lost at home in the league since mid-October, having drawn their last three,  and will be keen to put on a show in front of their fans.

“I think this is as tough as it comes,” said Gavin, one or two of whose players are still not back to full health following a bug that swept through the camp.

“I think Cray wanderers are a decent side and a really tough test awaits on an unfamiliar surface. It’s another significant hurdle we need to overcome and we’ll need to work very hard to do that.

“On a more important note I’m sure everyone at Enfield Town would like to wish Yahya Bamba a speedy recovery.”
