CANVEY Island face a daunting trip to high-flying Maidstone United as they look to bounce back from a Bank Holiday defeat at Bury.

Danny Heale’s side recorded an impressive 1-1 draw when on the road in Kent last year, with Jay Curran the man on the mark. And Curran will be looking to add to his impressive tally of five goals in the Gulls opening six games at The Gallagher Stadium.

Heale has a fully fit squad, with only attacking full-back Tambeson Eyong unavailable. Rio Bryan-Edwards has also rejoined the club from Bishop’s Stortford.

Maidstone have won their opening three home matches and find themselves second in the league, five points ahead of ninth placed Canvey.

Concord Rangers host Gosport Borough as they bid to make it back-to-back wins after taking three points last Monday.

Danny Cowley said his team have found it hard in the last couple of weeks with injuries (Leon Gordon, Tony Stokes, and Jack Lampe are all out) but said Steve King is likely to be fit for tomorrow’s match.

New boy Roman-Michael Percil is expected to be in the squad for the Beachboys, having joined the club this week.

Billericay Town face a tough test, with Dulwich Hamlet the visitors to new Lodge.

Dulwich have lost only one of their opening six games and sit fifth in the division, and Town boss Craig Edwards confirmed the game was too soon for four of his players, although Chris Benjamin could return after a family bereavement.

Jeffrey Imudia will return at Barking tonight after suffering a rib injury in pre-season.

Ricky Sappleton, Rowan Liburd and Chris Webber are still out of contention.
