GREAT Wakering Rovers player-manager Steve Butterworth is confident his side will pick up three points when they face Witham Town tomorrow.

Wakering claimed a 3-0 Isthmian League Cup victory over Witham just 10 days ago.

And, although he knows Witham will be much-changed from that meeting, Butterworth believes Wakering have enough attacking options to seal an Isthmian North win at Burroughs Park.

Butterworth said: “It’s another home game and we want to make Burroughs Park a difficult place for other teams to come to.

“We played them last week but they made eight or nine changes so it will be a completely different game.

“They got a great result at Histon and then drew with Romford in midweek, so it will be tough.

“But I don’t expect us to lose and I’m hoping for a positive result.

“If we get that, we will still be where we want to be going into the following round of fixtures.

“I’m expecting us to be an attacking threat and we will hopefully get three points.”

Wakering head into the clash following a 1-1 derby draw with Basildon United in midweek.

Daniel Akindayini’s injury time strike ensured Wakering would leave the Cousins Car Wash Stadium with a share of the spoils after Danny Norton had put the hosts ahead.

The clash also saw former Wakering striker Adam Vyse denied from the penalty spot by Bobby Mason before being sent off, while Basildon’s Ayo Odukoya and Wakering skipper Marc Gorbell given their marching orders.

And Butterworth is hoping to go through the entire month of September unbeaten.

Butterworth added: “I thought we were the better side but they played with 10 men for 60 minutes, missed a penalty and were clean through once as well so they probably had the better chances.

“I said to the boys at half-time to respect the point and I’ve set the boys a challenge of going undefeated this month.

“The boys thought they should have won but when you look at the chances, a point was fair.”
