Tower Hamlets travel away to lowly Essex Senior League rivals Waltham Forest as they look to get themselves back on a run this weekend.

The Mile End-based club will go to Wadham Lodge Stadium on Saturday (3pm) as they bid to claw some points back on the league’s top six teams.

The leading pack is starting to pull clear of the rest and Hamlets will be hoping they can keep themselves in the running.

AJ Ashanike and Ade Abayomi’s men go into the match on the back of a 3-2 victory against local rivals Hackney Wick under the Friday night lights.

The win left Hamlets seventh after finally seeing off a stubborn Wick to bounce back after two successive defeats.
