THE MATCH: Bowers & Pitsea will be targeting 60 points when they make the short trip to Brentwood Town tomorrow.

Rob Small’s team fought back to secure a last-gasp win against Tilbury on Tuesday, with defender John Easterford scoring for the second time in two games.

The win keeps Bowers in second and keeps them just three points off the summit.

Brentwood have been hit and miss this season and have won just once in their last nine matches.

However, that one victory was a thrilling 4-3 triumph at league leaders AFC Hornchurch.

Although down in 19th place, Brentwood are unlikely to go down with just one team facing the drop this term.

THE INSIGHT: “Last year with three relegation places you saw some phenomenal performances from guys down there to flip the form guide upside down,” said Small. “It is too early for that at the moment and no-one will be in cruise control yet so Brentwood will desperately want the points.

“They have some of our past players (Jack Gardner and Alfie Hilton), it is a local game and there are plenty of reasons for them to turn up.

“Although we are probably in a false league position we are still second in the division. We would be averaging two points a game if we were to win tomorrow and that would be great. We just need to keep scoring points and the world will continue to be rosy.”

THE TEAM NEWS: James Thomas (knee) may miss his third game in a row, while Martyn Stokes, formerly of Brentwood, is nursing a hip injury.
