High-flying Colchester will hope to keep up the pressure on leaders, Eton Manor, in London 1 North today.
Anthony O’Riordan’s opening day defeat to their promotion rivals remains their only setback and has left the Essex side chasing the leaders, who are two points clear at the top.
Colchester are at home to 10th-placed Ruislip, while Eton Manor face a tricky-looking fixture at Letchworth Garden City – a side with a perfect home record this term.
Elsewhere in London 1, Ipswich have a golden chance to drag themselves away from the bottom of the table with a win at fellow strugglers, Romford & Gidea Park.
Ipswich are second-bottom with 13 points, just one behind today’s opponents. They were defeated last time out, albeit it was a respectable one, 43-13, at home to the aforementioned league leaders.
In London 2 North, leaders Chelmsford travel to fifth-placed Diss, while Braintree – in relegation trouble at the other end of the league, and without a win all season – host sixth-placed club, Saffron Walden.
Graham Richards’s Sudbury are leading London 3, having won every game this season, and should start favourites away at Beccles this afternoon.
