Redbridge are looking to continue chasing down the front runners in the Essex Senior League when they face Hoddesdon Town. 

The Motormen will make the trip to Lowfield on Saturday (November 13) on the back of another successful week. 

Manager George Christou's side sit third in the table after they beat Sawbridgeworth Town and picked up a draw against West Essex. 

They saw off the Robins with a 2-0 win thanks to goals from defenders Joe Elliott and Jack Roult last Saturday before being held to a 1-1 draw at home to West Essex with Dean Hall on the scoresheet.

Neighbours Woodford Town, who are ninth in the league table, also had mixed fortunes as they sealed an emphatic 5-1 victory over Takeley on Tuesday evening on the back of a 2-1 loss to Little Oakley last Friday at Ashton Playing Fields. 

They will make the short trip to rivals Ilford on Monday evening (November 15) at Cricklefield Stadium. 

Ilford will travel to Takeley on Saturday before hosting the Woods, after a 1-0 win over St Margaretsbury last weekend left them sixteenth in the league.
