LOOKING AHEAD: East Thurrock United will be desperate to get over their poor run of league form when they face fellow strugglers Weston-super-Mare tomorrow.

Rocks, third from bottom, travel to the National League South’s bottom club determined to build on two victories in succession – albeit they were friendly and County Cup wins against sides from divisions below them.

East Thurrock have been beaten in nine of their 11 matches up to now in the league but Weston remain the only team in the division without three points to their name.

With just two points so far, Weston have lost their last five matches in the league but will be buoyed by a last-gasp FA Cup win against Coggeshall Town last time out.

MANAGER’S VIEW: “Losing becomes a habit and so does winning,” said boss John Coventry. “We have won a friendly and a county cup game – albeit against teams from a lower level - which won’t do us any harm.

“I must say that White Ensign acquitted themselves excellently on the night in midweek and I thought they handled the game very well.

“We approached training in a good frame of mind. I am looking forward to going to Weston.

“They are a good footballing side. Their manager has them playing in a way that is hard to deal with. He is finding it tough at the moment, as am I.

“We keep losing games in the last five minutes. We need to overcome that and that is down to concentration.”

TEAM NEWS: New signings Steve Sheehan, Reece Prestedge, Jonathan Nzengo and Gokan Can are all available.
