Millers travel to Waltham Abbey on Saturday, 15.00 PM Kick off.

Millers form so far this season has frustrating for all but recently we have only loss two out of last eight games, with a mix of three wins and three draws.

We played Waltham Abbey on the opening day of the season, where Abbey's James Peagrum scored two fantastic goals to clinch all three points for the Abbey on the day. But since then the Millers won 11 games on the trot, then lost seven on trot but have now recovered well.

Waltham Abbey were much tipped to struggle this season but have surprised many people so far this season as they sit 11th, only four points off the Millers in 9th.

Waltham Abbeys home form is a real mix bag, four wins, three draws and three defeats. Much like the Millers away form, four wins, three draws and four defeats. This game on paper should be a really tight affair.

Abbeys recent form has been impressive with only three defeats in the past ten games. They have also won four of those games and drawn three of the remaining games.

Having spent a large amount of money on their pitch at the start of the season, so hopefully it is still looking good and will bring a good game of football on Saturday.

Abbeys main scorers are Hallett who has eight and mentioned before James Peagrum with six goals.

For the Millers, we have Marcus Elliott who has nine goals so far this season. With three goals in the last two games.

Both clubs could have one eye on their Essex Senior Cup games on Monday as Waltham Abbey play against Dagenham & Redbridge and the Millers host Chelmsford City, so it will be interesting to see what starting line up both teams play and what substitutions both teams make towards the end of the game, possibly to rest the 'more important' players.

Team News for the Millers- Alfred Kamara, Brian Okwera, Billy Holland and Alex Stavrinou should all be out with Knee, toe, thigh and pelvis injuries respectively.

Tyler Devlin will miss Saturday's game due to a suspension that kicks in tomorrow which he received at his previous club. And Paul Burnett may be missing due to work commitments.

Aziz Kanu and Elias Armah-Tackie are both still out on loan at Ilford FC so obviously will not feature for us on Saturday.

No Lee Weemes either due to him signing for Bishop Stortford yesterday.

However signing of Millers youth player Tarryn Allarakhia who is looking to make a good impression on Millers boss Justin Gardner.
