Top scorer Higgins set to start for East Thurrock at Lowestoft
East Thurrock’s top scorer Sam Higgins is in line to start at Ryman Premier heavyweights Lowestoft today, after playing the second half of Rocks’ 1-1 at Hastings on Tuesday.
Higgins, who is seeking full match fitness after a hamstring tear, set up Kye Ruel for the equaliser at the Pilot Field.
Rocks have also been boosted by news of good progress in his recovery for Steve Sheehan from a broken leg.
The central defender is set to have a scan on Friday which will determine whether he can return to full contact action, and manager John Coventry said he could feature for the reserves today.
Rocks lost 2-0 to Lowestoft in mid December, but could have easily got something from the game.
Coventry said: “They are a good side and – before the likes of Whitehawk come along – start the season as favourites because their large fan base allows them to have a large budget.
“We’d all like that, of course, but we when we get all our best players on the pitch we feel we are a match for anyone in this division.”
