Town Go Again Against Ricay

The games are coming thick and fast and there’s no time to feel sorry for ourselves after Saturday’s narrow defeat to Hornchurch.

There’s no better way to dust ourselves down than to go again and that’s what we do tomorrow Tuesday against fellow contenders Billericay (k-o 7.45).

It’s a classic six-pointer, arguably bigger than against runaway leaders Hornchurch given the tight race for playoff places.

The Blues are third in the league, three points ahead of us having played one game fewer.

It’s therefore imperative we don’t allow them to get away but having gained a thoroughly deserved 1-1 draw against our Essex rivals earlier in the season, there is no reason why we can’t match or better that result.

Ricay were beaten 1-0 late on at Bognor on Saturday and before that were held at Cheshunt. But 15 goals in their previous four games tells its own story.

It promises to be a mouth-watering occasion under the lights against another big-spending heavyweight opponent and Gavin Macpherson is under no illusions.

“We knew this week would be a tough one, when you play the best two teams in the league in the space of few days it’s demanding,” said Gav. “We must focus more than ever on the job in hand and get us back functioning like I know we can.”
