And the Bloods will then return to Catons Lane on Tuesday when they welcome Redbridge for an Essex Senior Cup tie.

Jason Maher's men maintained their unbeaten record in the Essex Senior League with a 3-0 home win over Ilford at the weekend.

After a goalless first half, they saw Jack Leachman and Charlie Cole (2) find the net to make it nine games without league defeat and maintain a five-point lead at the top of the table.

Hot-shot striker Cole was presented with the September player of the month award by chairman Stuart Vant before kick-off, when Jamie Riley also received the August award.
