Leigh will endeavour to pile on the misery when they welcome bottom team Harlow Town to Chalkwell Park.

Despite losing three Shepherd Neame Essex League Division Two matches this season, Leigh find themselves just two points off leaders Loughton after six matches.

Victory against Horndon-on-the-Hill last time out propelled Leigh five points above third-placed Wickford.

And captain Joe Sexton is backing his side to continue their good form.

“We played twice against Harlow last year and both were good games and weren’t one-sided,” said the Leigh skipper. “Although the table suggests otherwise they have strong players that can win a game on their day. But so do we.

“We are in a good position this weekend as we haven’t lost too many guys so availability is good and people coming into the side are reaching our standards.

“We are only six games in but we are putting our best foot forward. We just need to keep it up now.”

Wickford visit South Woodford in search of a third consecutive win.

And it is set to be a good match between two teams in decent form.

South Woodford are only seven points behind them in the standings and a reverse will see Wickford leapfrogged in the table.

An impressive 10 wicket win against Old Southendian & Southchurch last weekend will have put Woodford in confident mood.

And Andy Baker, Wickford’s captain, is taking nothing for granted ahead of the encounter.

“Harlow are not doing well at the moment but the moment you start underestimating teams then you will come unstuck,” said Baker.

“We have picked up some good results recently and we are feeling confident but that can all change very quickly.

“We will approach this as we approach every game and give it our very best shot to get the points.”

Old Southendian & Southchurch will look to turn the form guide on its head when they make the trip to top dogs Loughton.

Only one defeat in their opening six matches means Loughton are the team to beat in the early weeks.

The Old Boys were unable to touch the South Woodford top order last week as the bowlers toiled at Garon Park.

They will hope for better in what is expected to be warm temperatures tomorrow.

Horndon-on-the-Hill have endured something of a dip in form in recent weeks.

They make the trip to second-bottom side Harlow looking to end a three match losing run in all competitions.
