Town Back In Action

Will the rest have done the players the world of good in terms of recharging batteries? Or will the enforced layoff leave us lacking sharpness despite several training sessions?

We’ll find out tomorrow (Tuesday) night when, after having our last two games postponed, Enfield Town take on local rivals Haringey Borough (kickoff 7.45) in the re-arranged fixture from New Year’s Day that was postponed because of the weather.

Haringey may be near the bottom of the table but invariably raise their game against us and are a force to be reckoned with on their day.

The corresponding fixture earlier in the season ended 1-1 and on Saturday, in their latest outing, they gained a commendable 2-1 win over Canvey Island.

“Haringey have beaten Billericay recently and defeated Canvey on Saturday so they will certainly get the respect they fully deserve,” said Gavin Macpherson.

“It’s going to be tough but at the same time we’re ready for the challenge. We’ve haven’t played recently but we’ve kept working hard. It’s important we impose ourselves on the game.

“After Cray it’s also important we faced the reality of why we fell short. It is not the first time we have lost but we’ve always had the ability to bounce back and that is all that matters now. The lads have worked hard at their game over the past week or so, there’s no pressure on them, they are enjoying the challenge.”
