Redbridge joint-manager Ricky Eaton believes Sporting Bengal United are one of the trickiest side’s in the Essex Senior League to come up against.

The Motormen will make the short trip to the Mile End Stadium this evening (7.45pm) as they look to continue their recent surge in form with two consecutive wins in all competitions.

“Sporting Bengal are one of the trickiest side’s in the league as you never know what you’re going to get with them.

“They’ve got some fantastic players and have hit some good form this season early doors.

“They look like they’re going to be a threat.”

The former London Bari boss admits the history of last season’s defeat to Bengal as they were chasing down the Essex Senior League title is in the past although he would like to grab the win.

“They beat us last season at the Oakside so it would be nice to go there and get a positive result.

“That’s all in the past now, we shot ourselves in the foot a couple of times towards the end of last season.

“Bengal is one of them teams you want to beat regardless of situations from in the past.

“As well as keep our momentum going but we do know it’s going to be a hard game for us.”
