A derby without the fans just isn’t the same says Bowers boss Small

Bowers & Pitsea v Basildon United – Saturday 3pm – Preview

Rob Small is relishing the opportunity to oversee his Bowers & Pitsea side in action against local rivals, Basildon United, but would much rather be doing it with friends.

Bowers faces the Bees at the Len Salmon Stadium but with no fans allowed to attend due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Small insisted it won’t be the same.

“I’m looking forward to a football match after such a long absence,” he told Yellow Sport.

“However, it doesn’t feel like proper football without supporters. Hopefully, they will be able to join us soon.”

Despite the restriction on fans attending football matches, Bowers and Bees followers can keep up with the action by tuning into Bowers & Pitsea Radio on https://mixlr.com/bowerspitsea
