Redbridge joint-manager Ricky Eaton wants to keep their winning streak alive against neighbours Ilford this evening.

The Motormen play host to the Foxes in a bid to make it five in a row and push up the Essex Senior League table at Oakside (7.45pm kick-off).

“We just want to keep the run going we’ve won four in a row and we don’t fear anyone, we’ve beat FC Romania, we’ve beat Barkingside so bring Ilford on.

“We’ve watched them twice, they’re a bit hit and miss, when they’re good they’re really good though.

“If we can catch them on an off day I expect us to win comfortably, if we don’t it will be a real hard game and I know they’re going to bring their A game as it’s a derby.”

The manager believes his side must worry about their own performance ahead of the clash.

“We’re going to concentrate on ourselves from now on, we’ve done ourselves good justice by winning the last four games.”

Eaton heaped praise on Ilford, but admits they know what to expect from their local rivals and will be fully prepared.

“Ilford has got some good players, Joe (May) and I are really aware of what they’ve got to offer,” he said.

“We know a lot of their players and we’ve seen them play numerous times so we know we will be coming up against.

“Let’s just see if we can get the three points and make it a good five wins in a row.”

Redbridge could keep the same starting line-up for the match, but Eaton did admits there could be a change or two.

“Whilst we’re winning and performing well, we’re going to try keeping it similar as much as we can, but yes there could be changes.”
