Imrul Gazi’s team entertain high-flying Takeley at the Mile End Stadium looking to cause a shock result

Sporting Bengal United’s long run without an Essex Senior League game is set to come to an end this evening.

Imrul Gazi’s team are due to host third-placed Takeley tonight at the Mile End Stadium.

It will be Bengal’s first match since losing 5-1 at Basildon United on November 4 – two-and-a-half weeks ago.

The lengthy period of time without a fixture has seen the east Londoners slide down the table having been in the top half for most of the early part of the season.

Bengal did play a recent friendly with Bostik North outfit Aveley at Parkside, but whether that is enough to prevent them from being rusty tonight remains to be seen.

Gazi’s men have already faced Takeley this season, on the opening day, and they lost 2-0 at Station Road, so the east Londoners will be out for revenge this evening.
