Side drew 1-1 at Hoddesdon Town last Saturday

Barkingside hope Friday’s game with London Borough of Redbridge rivals Woodford Town sees them build on a positive result in their last outing in the Essex Senior League.

Side ended a run of 10 straight defeats in the league with a 1-1 draw away to high-flying Hoddesdon Town on Saturday.

Harry Bushell had fired Town ahead in the eighth minute, before Michael Walther’s men drew level through Antoine Akinola four minutes later.

The Cricklefield Stadium side were able to hold on for a well-earned draw and collect their first league points since August 18.

Despite the draw, Barkingside remain marooned at the bottom of the table having not won all season.

But after a morale-boosting result at Hoddesdon, Side will hope they can record an overdue win on Friday night.

And if they can achieve that, boss Walther will hope it marks the start of their climb up the Essex Senior League.
