Tower Hamlets joint-manager AJ Ashinike is ‘looking forward’ to facing local Essex Senior League rivals Hackney Wick this evening.

Ashinike and his side travel away to Hackney Wick and are confident of putting their 2-1 defeat to Redbridge behind them with victory at the Old Spotted Dog.

“I’m looking forward to it,” he admitted.

“If I can get my players to get over Saturday quickly I see no reason why we can’t get three points.

“Saturday’s game was good and we had five players missing who could have started the game, so we should be stronger.”

The manager has also admitted he’s been watching the opposition’s pre-season results carefully and knows they will be high on confidence.

“During pre-season they have had some good results, but you just never know what you’re going to get in the lower leagues.

“It should be a good game.”
