Side suffered 1-0 defeat at Wivenhoe Town on Tuesday night

Barkingside have two chances to end their wait for a first Essex Senior League victory of the season this week.

Side welcome St Margaretsbury on Saturday, before making the trip to borough rivals Redbridge for what should be a tasty derby on Tuesday night.

Michael Walther’s men will head into that run of games off the back of a disappointing 1-0 loss at Wivenhoe Town in the first round of the BBC Essex Senior Cup on Tuesday.

Despite Wivenhoe playing a tier below the Cricklefield Stadium club in the Thurlow Nunn Division One South, Barkingside suffered an early exit from the competition.

It was a frustrating loss for Side and one they will want to get out of their system as quickly as possible.

Against St Margaretsbury on Saturday, Walther’s men will face a team who are level on points with them in the table.

While both sides have three points this term, the Saints’ have crucially come from a victory — something which the Cricklefield Stadium club are yet to experience this term.

Barkingside will want to collect the win on Saturday so as to give them a boost ahead of facing Redbridge on Tuesday.

Side used to call the Motormen’s Oakside Stadium their home, and Walther’s team will want to impress on the return to their old stamping ground.
