Hold on to your hats!

Enfield Town go into the first of two massive home games tomorrow as we test ourselves against a couple of the division’s heavyweights.

Billericay are the visitors on Tuesday but first we have the small matter of leaders Hornchurch (ko 3pm) against whom we put up more than a decent show in the corresponding game earlier in the season before running out of a gas and falling to a 2-0 defeat.

The Urchins have lost only once in the league all season and lead the table by six points, 10 ahead of us having played a game more.

Five points from our last five fixtures isn’t exactly playoff form but there is no better way to prove our mettle than to go toe to toe with one of the pre-season promotion favourites, especially since they are now under new management and have shown signs of vulnerability in recent games with three straight draws.

“We all know how difficult the week ahead is, starting with Hornchurch,” said Gavin Macpherson who is looking for our usual passionate support to get behind us.

“As it stands they are the best side in the division and we know how tough our task is. We are underdogs but we don’t mind that, I’m looking for the best of Enfield Town both on and off the pitch.”

“Against the best sides you are looking to find that extra 5 or 10%, our supporters can certainly give us that boost, we all know how crucial they are to us.”
