Saffron Walden Town will look to make it nine games unbeaten when they welcome bottom club Barkingside to Catons Lane in the Essex Senior League on Saturday.

The Bloods maintained their fine form with a 4-1 win at West Essex on Tuesday, having drawn 2-2 at lowly Southend Manor on Saturday.

They broke the deadlock at the weekend thanks to a penalty from James Crane, but Manor were back on terms on 70 minutes through Jordan Fisher and took a late lead as Rhys Fatt fired home.

However, there were six minutes of stoppage time and that allowed Tony Da Silva the chance to net a late leveller to ensure Walden earned a share of the spoils.

There was no such drama as they went back on the road to Barking’s Mayesbrook Park ground in midweek, though.

Lewis Francis opened the scoring with another spot-kick and Dan Trendall doubled the advantage for Jason Maher’s men.

Francis claimed his second goal of the night before the break and man of the match Trendall also doubled up in the second half as they ran out comfortable winners and moved up to second in the table behind leaders Stansted.

Trendall was also named player of the month for October and is set to receive his award along with September winner Greg Strong at Saturday’s match.

Bloods should be confident of extending their unbeaten run as they host a struggling Barkingside outfit, who are currently propping up the table with just four points having played 15 matches so far without a win.

They lost 6-1 at home to Woodford Town in their most recent match last Friday.

Walden then return to east London to take on Redbridge at their Oakside Stadium base in the cup on Tuesday.

The under-18s are due to play host to Haverhill tonight (Thursday), while the reserves visit their Redbridge rivals tomorrow (Friday).

The second string came from two goals down to draw with their Southend Manor counterparts at the weekend, with Graeme Turner halving the deficit early in the second half.

The home side scored again to go 3-1 up, but substitute Saeed Zamehran grabbed a second for Walden midway through the half.

And they ensured honours would finish even as Turner netted his second goal five minutes from time, as Dan Pinkney took man of the match.
