RELEGATION-threatened Great Wakering Rovers face a tough test when Ryman League Division One North promotion hopefuls, AFC Hornchurch, are the visitors to Burroughs Park on Saturday.
Keith Wilson’s Rovers produced a decent performance, picking up a point from last weekend’s 1-1 draw at Norwich United. However, the Rovers chief will be painfully aware that his side needs to start picking up all three points if they are to avoid slipping back into the Essex Senior League at the end of the campaign.
The Urchins arrive in the village sitting fourth in the Ryman North table and off the back of a narrow 1-0 derby victory over Romford at Bridge Avenue, thanks to a goal from former Southend United man and Rovers loanee, Teddy Nesbitt.
