Foxes drew 0-0 at home to Hoddesdon Town last Saturday

Ilford will look to trouble the scorers on Saturday when they play host to Walthamstow in the Essex Senior League.

The Foxes were also at home last weekend, but were held to a goalless draw by Hoddesdon Town.

It means Martin Haywood’s men will be looking to avoid a third game without a win in the league.

Against the Stags, though, it will be tough with Walthamstow among the teams near the top of the table at the start of the season, like Ilford.

Ryan Maxwell’s men can also call on the likes of prolific forward James Peagram, who had a stint with the Foxes last term.

With a striker like Peagram in the opposition ranks, Haywood will know his defence will be severely tested this Saturday.

But the Ilford boss will hope his team can take all three points at Cricklefield Stadium this coming Saturday as they look to remain among the early front runners in the division.
