Imrul Gazi’s side suffered a 2-1 defeat at home to Ilford on Saturday, but will be hoping to respond positively this evening

Sporting Bengal United visit Woodford Town (2017) later looking to end their four-game run without a win in the Essex Senior League.

Imrul Gazi’s men suffered a narrow 2-1 loss at home to Ilford last weekend with the away side scoring in the last minute.

A Codey Cameron goal had got Bengal back on level terms, but they couldn’t hold out for their first point of 2018.

The Mile End Stadium played have only played twice this year – 2-1 loss against Ilford and 4-1 defeat at Sawbridgeworth Town – and sit in a healthy 14th-placed position.

Nevertheless, having not won since December 2, Gazi will aim to see his team return to winning ways this evening against a Woodford side just ahead of them in the table.

Town have 32 points compared to Bengal’s 28 having played a game more, so a positive result for the visitors tonight will boost their hopes of a top-half finish this season.

For the past six months, employers and employees have been adapting to ways of working from home. The green light has now been given to many people to go back to offices safely. From flexible hours and staggered starting times to deep cleaning, we’re getting ready for new ways of working.

School’s in for summer – and beyond – with health experts agreeing that pupils safely returning to their studies is “positively” the right thing to do.
