Ilford manager Allan Fenn fully aware Mile End Stadium-based club can be “very good on their day”

Tower Hamlets are braced for two tough tests in the Essex Senior League this week against the same opposition!

Ilford make the trip to the Mile End Stadium tomorrow (Friday) looking to keep up their good form.

Foxes haven’t lost since February 25 while Hamlets are without a win in six games, so can expect a tough test.

After hosting Ilford, Ade Abayomi’s team will then visit Cricklefield Stadium next Wednesday (March 22).

It is a bizarre fixture scheduling, although not the first time Hamlets have faced the same side back-to-back.

Last month they beat Burnham Ramblers 4-1 before losing 3-1 to the same opposition three days later.

Hamlets will have Ajay Ashnike available after leaving Ilford in February to return to Mile End.

And the Foxes manager Allan Fenn is certain his ex-player will be keen to impress against his old club.

He said: “We will be up against Ajay, who left us recently, and I imagine he will start for them.

“Tower Hamlets can be very good on their day and also very bad, so they are quite an inconsistent side.

“I am confident the boys will be up for the game on Friday night, so we are looking to win and extend our run.”
