Clapton won again last night while Newham set to host Eton Manor tomorrow

London Bari’s busy finish to the Essex Senior League campaign continues tonight (Wednesday) when they make the trip to FC Romania.

Chris Davis’ men are set to play four times in seven days, but will want to continue their recent good form and finish in the top six.

They won 4-2 at Eton Manor on Monday following an Adrian Sanchez hat-trick with Jamal Jimoh also finding the net from the penalty spot.

It was their first match in nine days after various postponements recently and now they will visit Theobolds Lane to face FC Romania.

The Hertfordshire club were going for the title at the start of April, but have seen their challenge falter following two defeats from their last three games.

Bari will hope to extend their good record of late as they have only lost one of their past eight fixtures before they Davis visit Takeley on Saturday.

After that, Davis and his players will make the trip to Coles Park on Monday to play Greenhouse Sports in their penultimate match this season.

Newham’s clash with Eton Manor was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch at the weekend, but they will hope to get that game at Chadfields on tomorrow (Thursday).

Shamrez Darr’s men will host Southend Manor on Saturday, before making the return trip to Manor on Monday evening - their last fixture of the campaign.

The poor weather last weekend also means Clapton are in the middle of a hectic schedule right now, but confidence is high in the camp.

Michael Walther’s men drew 3-3 with Bowers & Pitsea last Tuesday, before Saturday’s fixture at Waltham Forest was off due to a waterlogged pitch.

Last night they won 4-2 at Takeley with Tony Cookey and Sherwin Stanley hitting braces at Station Road to move them up to sixth.

Tons visit Forest tomorrow before hosting Stansted on Saturday at the Old Spotted Dog, which is a dress rehearsal for the Gordon Brasted Memorial Trophy final on April 30.
