Ryman Division 1 North
18.02.2017 at 15:00 - Ship Lane
Bury Town travel to Thurrock FC looking to recover from 5 straight defeats in the Ryman League Division 1 North. The Blues play off hopes have taken a nosedive since the three impressive results at Christmas and Town now face an uphill struggle to reach the end of season promotion spots. This week has seen Tevan Allen depart for AFC Sudbury but Regan Pelling has joined on loan from Leiston to add strength to the squad.
Our hosts are looking to reach the play off`s for the 3rd consecutive season and are on course to succeed, but a 4-0 defeat a leaders Maldon & Tiptree last weekend saw them suffer a knock back. Six straight wins in December saw the Fleet shoot up the table but some indifferent results of late mean that Mark Stimson`s side will have to settle for the play off`s rather than taking automatic promotion via the league title.
Manager Ben Chenery will be without captain Bradley Barber who is suspended after being sent off in the 1-2 defeat at home to Phoenix Sports last weekend, and long term absentee Ollie Canfer is still out injured.
