The pre-season juggernaut rolls on to the scene of our last away win some six months ago, as Hakan Hayrettin and his side travel to National League South Welling United.

How times have changed since that win at Park View Road in mid-January, a 4-2 success secured late on courtesy of a Jack Holland header and a Dan Smith strike, which saw Paul Barnes' side sit eight points above the drop zone. Sadly the season didn't end at that point.

We all know how the rest of the script played out, and we now travel to our former league rivals with both sides currently winless in pre-season. Since January's win, both sides have in fact changed managers, as Eastbourne Borough man Danny Bloor replaced the outgoing Warren Feeney earlier in the summer.

We go into the fixture having drawn 0-0 at blustery Aveley on Saturday, a game which saw both of our goalkeepers impress between the sticks, as well as strong performances from the defence too against several Aveley attacks. That result comes after our 2-1 defeat to Altona '93 and 2-2 draw with Bromley during the first week of matches. Anthony Jeffrey should return to the squad tonight following his absence on Saturday, Mark Ricketts may still be on the sidelines with a slight knee issue with a view on returning for Saturday.

The Wings began their pre-season with a 4-0 loss to Charlton Athletic, before an away journey to Cray Wanderers on 8th July saw them lose 2-1. Hamlet fans will recognise numerous faces within the Welling squad this evening, with Will Wood having joined earlier in the summer from Champion Hill, whilst Taofiq Olomowewe has rejoined the club, with Dominic Odusanya and Lewis White also signing since Danny Bloor took over.

Unsurpisingly, Bloor has recruited a few faces from his Eastbourne side, including keeper Lee Worgan, defender Mitchell Dickenson and midfielder James Vaughan.

Admission tonight is £10 for adults and £5 for concessions/students/U16s.
