Rovers look to close the gap

Heybridge Swifts v Great Wakering Rovers – Pitching In Isthmian League North – Aspen Waite Arena – Saturday (3pm) – Preview

Great Wakering Rovers will be looking to build on their superb midweek victory over promotion-chasing Grays Athletic when they make the short trip to Heybridge Swifts.

Glenn Robson’s relegation-haunted men made significant ground on those above them when Charlie Morris struck home a sweet volley from eighteen yards after Billy Johnson’s cross had only been half-cleared by the Grays backline.

That result left the villagers just three points from safety having provided themselves with a huge confidence booster.

Hosts, Heybridge are amongst the group of teams just above the Rovers. They were beaten 3-1 at home by Grays in their last league outing – Jack Adlington-Pile on target for the mid-Essex outfit.

Heybridge Swifts: Callum Chafer, Archie McFadden, Chris Gregan, Jeremy Arthur, Darren Phillips, Adam Topley, Darius Ghinea, Lewis Gard, Andrew Fennell, Jack Adlington-Pile, Lionel Ainsworth, Daniel Walker, Alex Stephenson, Jason Mason, Joseph Claridge, Emmanuel N’Daw

Great Wakering Rovers: Tim Brown, Lewis Jaggs, Billy Johnson, George Cox, Thomas Anderson, Connor Martin, Connor Hammond, Billy Harris, Martin Tuohy, Charlie Morris, Shaye McKenzie-La-Rose, Jack Glenister, Sonny Dutton, Sam Dulieu, Sam Carter, Danny Hurford
