LOOKING AHEAD: East Thurrock face the unenviable task of a trip to Torquay United in their search for points this term.

Rocks can consider themselves unfortunate to be without a point so far as only injury time goals in both of their first two matches have rendered them pointless.

Manager John Coventry was back in the dugout for Wednesday night’s 2-1 reverse against Dulwich Hamlet, but it was not enough to inspire the team to victory.

American striker Danilo Orsi-Dadomo scored his first goal for the club on the half hour, but second half strikes from Gavin Tomlin and Dipo Akinyemi won the clash for Dulwich.

Torquay have four points from their opening two games and are yet to concede a goal.

MANAGER’S VIEW: “Dulwich were very good,” said Coventry. “We were poor and they got us on a bad day.

“In my mind I always knew this was a tough week and the fear was you could have no points at the end of it and it will be very tough at Torquay.

“You need to see competitive games to see where you are at and the performance at Dulwich wasn’t acceptable.”

TEAM NEWS: Ben Marlow returns, while injured defender Sammy Knott has departed the club.
