Back to winning ways the key for Glenn

CHELMSFORD City boss Glenn Pennyfather says his players can't wait to get back to winning ways in the Blue Square South.

The eight-placed Clarets lost to Bath City in their last outing, but a home win over Weston-super-Mare today would propel them up a tight league table.

“We have an opportunity now to start another run,” said Pennyfather, whose side progressed through to the third round of the FA Trophy on Tuesday night with a 2-1 replay win over AFC Hornchurch.

“The players can't wait to get back to winning ways in the league and we have an opportunity now to start another run.

“It's vital that, now we have a full squad, we take advantage of that and get some competition for places. I want everyone on-form and firing as we're all pulling towards a common goal and supporting each other.”

City's only injury concerns are with their regular full-backs, Steve Clark and Michael Haswell. Right-sided Clark has an ankle knock while Haswell took a blow to the knee in midweek.

However, neither are serious doubts and Pennyfather is pleased to see winger Anthony Cook making a full recovery from his injury.

He said: “We don't want anyone playing below 100% and we've rested Cooky so he's in a position to come back into the team in full condition.”

Weston finished 17th in the Blue Square South last season and are faring no better this season, sitting in 20th position having conceded three or more goals in five of their last seven games.

Meanwhile, seventh-place Braintree Town host ninth-place Eastleigh. The Iron put in a good performance at Blue Square South leaders Newport County in the Trophy last Saturday as they exited the competition with a narrow 2-1 defeat. Robbie Garvey's side are currently unbeaten in four league games.

In the Ryman League Division One North, 13th place Heybridge Swifts visit high-flying East Thurrock United, while 15th place Maldon Town are at home against mid-table Ilford.

In the Essex Senior League, 12th place Witham Town will be looking to make it four league victories in a row when they host a Hullbridge Sports side that are one point and one place below them in the table.
