GARRY Kimble is looking for a reaction when Great Wakering Rovers welcome a rejuvenated Tilbury to Burroughs Park tomorrow.

Wakering suffered a 3-1 defeat to Soham Town Rangers, which riled boss Kimble, last time out.

And Kimble believes his players have something to prove when an in-form Tilbury side, managed by ex-Basildon United chief Marc Harrison, make the trip.

“They have enjoyed an upturn in form and it’s going to be a hard game for us,” said Kimble.

“They have got a few former Basildon players and they will be difficult to beat.

“But we have got to make sure we are at the races, because we weren’t good enough last week.

“The players have got something to prove because I was not happy with our performance as Soham.

“If the players give 100 per cent and play to the same standard as they did in the win over Heybridge Swifts two weeks ago, then hopefully we will pick up three points.”

Kimble, who will be without the injured Tommie Hession-Harris, hopes that going up against a Harrison-led Basildon already this season will play to his advantage.

“You would hope that would play into our hands a bit,” added Kimble.

“Our home form is very good, but you know any side led by Marc will be difficult to beat.”
