Clapton assistant manager Wayne Seal wants his side to keep piling the pressure on the top four in the Essex Senior League.

The Tons will welcome Takeley to The Old Spotted Dog on Saturday (3pm) as they look to extend their winning streak to six games.

Seal and Jonny Fowell’s men leapfrogged their opponents with a 3-2 victory against Stansted last weekend to move them into fifth-place and they’ll now be looking to keep pushing on.

“It’s a massive game we know with the upcoming fixtures across the league that anything is to play for yet,” Seal said.

“I know there is two going up this season and that’s essentially between the top four but we also know they’ve all got to play each other so we just want to keen up our run and then you never know.

“For us we know we’ve played quite a few more than the other teams but we have the points on the board and they still have to play their games.”

Seal admits his side want to continue their winning run but knows it will be a tough task against Takeley.

“We really want to continue our good run,” he said.

“Takeley are a good side and they have some phenomenal players, I’d say they’re quite similar to us in that respect and have some quality attacking players.

“I think it will be about who can minimise their mistakes.”

The Tons suffered a 2-0 defeat to Marc Das’ men earlier this campaign thanks to goals from

Stuart Anthony Zanone and Mitchell Das at the Station Road Stadium.

“It’s not about revenge as we respect all of our opponents in the league but it always adds something extra if you can say we owe them for last time.”

Clapton should have a full fit squad to choose from for the clash but Seal reveals it’s down to availability.

“No real injury concerns right now, we have a lot of players with little knocks, but nothing too concerning.

“It just comes down to availability really as last weekend Ryan Reed wasn’t available to us and young Max Henry had a semi-final with the youth team.”
