Ade Abayomi has brought former player-manager and captain Ajay Ashnike back to the club

Tower Hamlets are preparing to host mid-table Basildon United in the Essex Senior League this weekend looking to produce another shock.

When the two clubs last met on November 1, they shared eight goals each in an entertaining 4-4 draw.

It was a surprise result and Ade Abayomi’s team will be keen to do the same again at Mile End Stadium on Saturday.

The east Londoners can take heart from their performance against league leaders Barking last weekend.
