Town visit Bridge Avenue today to take on Hornchurch in a preview of the league cup final following both teams success in midweek. While Town battled to get past Stortford, holding their nerve to win the penalty shootout, Hornchurch saw off Bracknell Town for their place in the final.
In the league a good start to the season saw Hornchurch at the right end of the table but a decline in form leaves them in 18th place at the moment. It's a different situation from when the two clubs met back in August and Hornchurch grabbed a last minute goal to share the points. They seem to be edging away from the drop zone but it is still probably too close for comfort and they will be keen to get more points in the bag and climb further up the table.
As well as the league cup interest, this game has further intrigue following a flurry of transfer activity. With Remi Sutton making the move to Hornchurch last week Town have made the move to boost their defence with...Jay Porter. The Urchins defender making the move in the opposite direction in the week.
This will be a fascinating contest on a number of levels.
