League points up for grabs for Maldon, Witham, Clacton and Halstead
THERE are five matches tonight involving our non-league sides.
In addition to MALDON & TIPTREE’S Ryman One North trip to Redbridge, WITHAM TOWN have a home date with Harlow.
Garry Kimble’s side will be looking to bounce back after losing 3-0 against St Albans City in the FA Trophy on Saturday.
FC CLACTON have a tough Thurlow Nunn League match at premier division leaders Hadleigh United.
The Suffolk side have a nine-point lead at the summit after Saturday’s single-goal victory against in-form Felixstowe & Walton United.
However, Clacton can take heart from their spirited performance against second-placed Haverhill Rovers.
The Seasiders were leading twice before their visitors pegged them back to draw 2-2.
HALSTEAD TOWN, second in division one, will be hopeful of three more points when they visit neighbours Cornard United.
Tonight also sees a match between HEYBRIDGE SWIFTS and BRAINTREE TOWN, in the Essex Senior Cup.
However, both sides are set to field weakened sides for the third-round tie at Scraley Road.
Braintree are flying high in the Skrill Premier while Swifts’ big priority this week is Saturday’s FA Cup fourth qualifying round tie at Boreham Wood.
“It will be a weakened side,” admitted Heybridge boss Mark Hawkes.
“It’s unfortunate but I have to prioritise.”
