BILLERICAY Town are yet to taste a National League South defeat at New Lodge this season – and Ronnie Henry is keen to keep that record intact for as long as possible.

Town host Tonbridge Angels tomorrow having not been beaten since a 2-0 loss to Bath City on the final day of last term denied them a play-off place.

Billericay have been involved in 10 home National League South fixtures since, winning half of those.

However, Jamie O’Hara’s side have been made to contend with a string of postponements in recent weeks and Henry concedes it has been a frustrating period.

“The main reason for it being so frustrating with the postponements is because we are very good at home,” said Henry.

“We still haven’t lost at home in the league and that is quite a big achievement in itself.

“It’s important that we get the rhythm going and push up the league.

“Over the course of the last few weeks, we have played some top sides and come out of the games with some good points.

“We want to maintain our unbeaten run for as long as possible because that will allow us to reach our goals for the season.”

Henry kept Billericay’s unbeaten streak on home soil intact by netting an injury time equaliser against Slough Town earlier this month.

It looked as though Billericay were going to succumb to a 2-1 loss until the skipper’s intervention.

But Henry, who joined in the summer from Stevenage, was left with mixed emotions after grabbing his first goal for the club.

“Although I was pleased to score a late equaliser against Slough, it was bittersweet,” added Henry.

“The two goals we conceded were avoidable and were similar to a lot of the goals we have conceded this season.

“We need to cut out the individual mistakes because they are resulting in us dropping points.

“The equaliser was good for me on a personal level and for us as a side because it resulted in us extending our unbeaten run at home, but I was quite disappointed to only draw.”

Billericay are currently three points better off than 18th-placed Tonbridge, who recovered from a two-goal deficit to overcome Town in the reverse fixture last month.

Town were two goals ahead at the break thanks to goals from debutant Femi Akinwande and Queens Park Rangers loanee Ody Alfa.

But a quickfire brace from former Concord Rangers winger Khale Da Costa and Tom Derry allowed Tonbridge to snatch all three points.
