This afternoon the Millers travel to local rivals Thurrock FC at Ship Lane.

After defeat to Brightlingsea Regent, who were the form team in the division the Millers could've felt it was a fair result against a very good side. However, after victories on Saturday and Tuesday, Thurrock are now the form team in the league. It doesn't get any easier for the Millers.

But for every local derby, form, league positions and points go out the window.

Thurrock have got this thing about them where they score late goals, normally Ross Wall gets them. So if the Millers want to win this game, they must play from the start to the finish.
