SOUTHEND Saxons will be looking to pitch it to Harpenden tomorrow.

Saxons got back to winning ways in London One North on Saturday with a 28-20 victory at Sudbury.

And scrum-half Harry Branch is now keen to secure more success at Harpenden in a game which will be played on an artificial surface.

“This weekend we’re up at Harpenden,” said Branch.

“It will be tough and it’s a different track than we are used to on a 4G pitch.

“Their home record is very impressive too and the only team that has beaten them is North Walsham who are top of the table.

“We will need to be clinical and precise with our attacking play and our defence needs to be watertight this weekend too.”

Southend will be making the trip sitting seventh in the London One North standings, one place and one point behind Harpenden.

But Branch feels Saxons will be heading into the clash on a high.

“It was great to get back to our winning ways,” said Branch.

“Obviously we’ve been through a tough few weeks so to get the win last weekend was fantastic.

“It was a tough fixture, as it always is with Sudbury.

“They take a lot to break down in defence but I thought the lads were exceptional.

“We played to our game plan and executed well when we had our chances.”

But Branch remains hungry for more.

“The plan for the rest of the season is to continue to play as hard as possible every week and perform every weekend professionally,” he added.

In London One South, ninth-placed Thurrock head to seventh-placed Horsham while, in London Two North East, South Woodham Ferrers head to Holt.

In London Three Essex, Basildon host King Cross Steelers while, in Essex One, Billericay host Writtle and second-placed Canvey Island host Millwall.
