We face Barking at Mayesbrook Park tonight
The game will be Barking's first home game of the season. The Blues' proposed conversion of their pitch to an artificial surface was delayed causing them to play their first five league fixtures away from home.
Barking sit in 18th place. So far the Blues have 2 draws and 3 defeats from their first five league games. Their last outing was a 1-1 draw at bottom of the table Ashford Town (Middx).
They did, however, win their last home game in convincing fashion. They defeated Grays Athletic 4-1 in the Velocity Trophy. The game took place in the same group that we're in meaning we'll play the Blues at least three times this season.
Ahead of the game manager Michael Spencer said, "After Saturday's disappointing result me and Billy are looking for a response from the boys, and 3 points to keep us close with the early pace setters."
