Bethnal Green United prepare for Mauritius clash

United set to face east London rivals

Bethnal Green United boss has admitted that Saturday’s opponents Mauritius Sports are an ‘unknown quantity’.

The Walthamstow outfit are struggling at the wrong end of the table and changed manager a few weeks ago.

Their fortunes are yet to change under the current incumbent and the east Londoners have only picked up two wins this season.

Gardner has not received information on Mauritius and has yet to see them this season.

“I don’t know what to expect from them, they are a bit of an unknown quantity,” the boss said.

“They’ve not won since the new boss has been in charge, but you always have to be wary of a team with a new boss.

“Of course I am confident and if we act in a professional manner we should win the game.”

A victory on Saturday will keep the Greens in contact with title rivals Stansted, Enfield and Witham, with United in the position knowing that winning those games in hand would put them level top.

“I would always rather be leading and have on the points on the board rather then having games in hand and chasing,” Gardner said.

“I am not too concerned at this stage by the amount of games played because we have enough free time on the schedule at the moment. Obviously if there comes a time where there are spate of games called off then we will have an issue.

“The games which had been called off are home games anyway. The ones I have trouble with are midweek games which are far away.

“Stansted are top and probably in the best position at the moment, but we are not badly placed ourselves. Our only blip came when we lost to Southend Manor and if that turns out to be our only blip, I’ll be extremely pleased.”
