Greenhouse London come to Cricklefield this evening

Ilford manager Allan Fenn has warned his team only two victories this week will satisfy him and stop him making more wholesale changes at Cricklefield.

Foxes host Greenhouse London tonight for an away fixture being played at their ground before visiting Sporting Bengal United on Saturday at Mile End Stadium.

Greenhouse and Bengal are the two bottom teams in the Essex Senior League and Fenn has warned only six points will do.

Fenn said: “If we don’t perform and get six points we will have another massive clear out. The last time we played Greenhouse we lost and it was probably worst performance of the season.

“We should be beating these sides. We have had three games in eight weeks and two of them were in the space of three days so trying to keep momentum and consistency is difficult.

“But tonight is massive for the players because they need to perform, I want the right attitude and the right result.”

Fenn revealed he will have an almost fully fit squad to choose from tonight, but will make changes if they don’t achieve the right result and performance.

Ilford have brought in various players on loan at times during the campaign and they will do the same again if they lose tonight.

“If the players don’t perform I will be getting players on loan from the Ryman North clubs because I will not keep having bad results,” insisted Fenn.

“Yesterday the pitch was fine. There was a bit of frost today, but I will be doing everything I can to get it on.

“We have a good side, a strong side out. I am missing Fabian Brown because of work, but I have a fully fit squad otherwise.”
