Redbridge joint-manager Ricky Eaton wants to end in-form Clapton’s eight game winning streak in the Essex Senior League.

The Motormen host the Tons at Oakside this evening (7.45pm) in a top of the table clash as both sides continue to push Basildon United and Takeley who currently sit first and second.

“It would be nice to end their run and keep our one going, as I think we’ve won 11 from 12 in the league, so we’re no pushovers ourselves,” Eaton said.

“Clapton are going to be a different eternity to what Burnham offers, but we’ll see how it goes and we’re looking forward to it.”

Eaton admits Clapton will be a real challenge but he expects nothing less than three points from the match.

“We’ve went and watched them a couple times, they’ve got some good players, they’re on a good run so you can’t disregard anything they’re doing down there,” he said.

“I know Jon Fowell gets them organised and structured, so it’s going to be a hard game for us, but I’m expecting us to win end of story.”

Redbridge are expected to make a few changes to the line-up with a few players returning to fitness in time for the clash.

“We’ve got a couple with niggles and we were missing three in Thomas Gogo, Reside Coxi-Sebastfao and Calvin Poku had a bit of strain, so we might have a couple of changes.

“Shaun Harris as well, centre midfielder he’s been a massive plus for us and is coming back, so we should be back to full strength.”

They go into the match on the back of a 3-1 victory against Burnham Ramblers thanks to a brace from Brian Moses and a late goal from Tommie Turner on Saturday.
