London Bari return to Essex Senior League action this weekend with a trip to local rivals Tower Hamlets after a lengthy break.

Chris Davis’ team haven’t played since the 1-1 draw at Hullbridge Sports on March 18, but will hope to show no signs of rustiness against struggling Hamlets on Saturday.

Bari remain 18th in the table, but could fall one spot this evening if Sporting Bengal United win at Haringey & Waltham later.

Hamlets will be looking to end their run of six consecutive defeats in the division, which means they are certain to finish in the bottom three.

Last weekend Ade Abayomi’s team were beaten 4-1 at Mile End Stadium to high-flying FC Romania after starting slowly.

Andrei Pavel struck twice for the away side inside the opening 16 minutes before Toby Cleaver made it 3-0 after 34 minutes.

Oliver Cleaver added a fourth for FC Romania in the 72nd minute before Edward Lang hit a consolation for Hamlets 11 minutes from time.
