Forest Road club start the weekend with a four-point lead at the top of the table

Ilford Wanderers return to action in Essex Canterbury Jack One Premier on Saturday when they host Billericay.

Wanderers will hope they still top the standings after the weekend, with only four points between them and Kings Cross Steelers in second.

The Forest Road outfit have been without a game since March 24 when they won 23-8 at Stanford Le Hope, with the league having taken last weekend off for Easter.

Ilford will hope the break has not disrupted their momentum, with the team having won their last seven in the league.

It is a run of form that has placed Wanderers at the head of the table, and they will hope their hot streak continues this weekend.

With Steelers having a game in hand over them, the Forest Lane club know they will have to keep on winning to win the title.

And with just two games to go for Ilford, looks set to be an exciting end to the current season.
