Town In Good Heart for Hashtag

Enfield Town venture into Essex tomorrow as we attempt to do the double over Hashtag United who play at Bowers and Pitsea’s ground.

The corresponding  game in October resulted in a 6-3 goalfest in favour of Town but victory of any kind tomorrow would stand us in good stead going into two mouth-watering six-pointers at home to Hornchurch and Billericay.

Hashtag have surprisingly lost their last five league games but are notoriously unpredictable and have beaten the likes of Billericay, Horsham and Folkestone.

They have also been boosted by a string of signings including Sam Cornish, last season’s player of the season at Wingate and Finchley.

They are certainly one of the division’s great entertainers, having lost 5-4 and 3-2 in their last two outings, so we can perhaps expect plenty of goals — hopefully not in our net!

Boosted by a hugely creditable 1-1 draw at Horsham in freezing conditions in midweek, we now negotiate yet another artificial surface but we go into tomorrow’s game in good heart.

“We now need to regain the consistency shown earlier in the season and the players have proved they are good enough to do that,” said Gavin Macpherson.

“It’s not an easy game at the weekend but few are. We need to up our levels and get on with the job in hand.”
