CANVEY ISLAND will be looking to turn around a rotten week on the road, having been beaten at Bury Town and Maidstone United.
Danzelle St Louis-Hamilton was at fault for three of the goals against Maidstone but Danny Heale confirmed he would be between the posts for tonight’s game at home against Hendon.
The Gulls have taken seven points from nine at home, and are aiming for six points from the games tonight and at the weekend (against VCD Athletic) although they face an anxious wait on the fitness of some of their stars.
Defender John Easterford and strikers Jay Curran and John Sands were all withdrawn at the weekend but may be involved tomorrow. Tambeson Eyong is also back in contention, after missing Saturday’s defeat.
Gulls have also been boosted by the news that former centre-back Steve Ward has re-joined the club as coach. He left his role as Maidstone assistant manager at the start of the season and links up with the first team, having played for them between 1996 -2006, and from 2011-2013.
Great Wakering Rovers will look to bounce back from a disappointing loss to Hertford Town in the FA Cup at promotion hopefuls Thurrock tonight.
Dan Trenkel’s men won their first match of the season last Monday at Romford and face a tough test at Ship Lane, where Mark Stimson had led his team to fourth in the division after six games.
Wakering will look to hotshot Jay Nash for goals, after netting four times early on this term.
