Tower Hamlets should return to action on Saturday after short break

Sporting Bengal United have a great chance to end their winess run with two home matches in the Essex Senior League this week.

Anwar Uddin’s side haven’t registered a victory since December 5 when they beat Greenhouse Sports 1-0.

Takeley are the visitors to the Mile End Stadium on Saturday, before strugglers Waltham Forest make the trip on Wednesday (February 17).

Both present Bengal with an excellent opportunity to get back to winning ways.

Uddin’s side have had mixed results over the past week as they were knocked out of the Gordon Brasted Memorial Trophy on Tuesday night.

Stansted scored late on to win 2-1 and progress to the semi-finals of the competition.

It was a disappointing result for Bengal after holding high-flying Basildon United to a goalless draw on Saturday.

They remain 13th in the table, but will hope to achieve some success this week.

Tower Hamlets will travel to Eton Manor this weekend for their first match in 12 days.

Ade Abayomi’s men were not in action on Saturday and haven’t played since drawing 1-1 with Hullbridge Sports.

But they will look to keep up their mini unbeaten run against Manor.

Hamlets haven’t lost since January 25 and picked up four points out of a possible six last time out.

After Saturday’s match, they get back to Mile End Stadium on Monday to entertain Bowers & Pitsea.

That clash could yet be postponed, however, if the Essex side have to replay their FA Vase match with Ipswich Wanderers, which is set to take place this weekend.
