Sporting Bengal United manager Imrul Gazi is expecting a big week as they look to get away from the Essex Senior League relegation zone.
Bengal welcome strugglers Burnham Ramblers to Mile End Stadium this evening (7.45pm) as they look to make it back-to-back wins after beating Ilford 2-1 on the weekend.
The club also face another struggling outfit Hullbridge Sports on Saturday and Gazi wants them to start breaking away from the dog fight.
“We’re looking to pick some points up in them two games as they’re crucial as we know there is relegation this year,” he said.
“Things are tight at the bottom and we just want to stay away from it and get to 40 points as soon as possible.”
Gazi says their next few fixtures are vital to their survival and they must ensure they pick up points but he knows Burnham will be trying to do the same.
“We’re in a good position going into our next few matches and our next three games we see as instrumental.
“We want to do everything to win and I’m sure they’ll be doing the same, we lost 4-1 to them a few months back and individual errors are what cost us, so if we can cut that out like we did Saturday I’m always confident that we can beat any team.”
The boss is confident in his squad and praised his new goalkeeper Hossam Hassan who made his debut last weekend.
“I’ve got a decent squad for Wednesday for the game against Burnham and then against Hullbridge I’ll be trying out a new striker.
“I’ve signed a new goalkeeper recently who had an outstanding game against Ilford.
“Hossam Hassan did brilliant so I’m really pleased for him.”
