EAST Thurrock United will be eager to bounce back from their derby defeat to Concord Rangers by picking up a positive result against Dartford.

Rocks suffered a 2-0 defeat to the Beach Boys on Boxing Day, with John Coventry’s side remaining in danger of suffering relegation from the National League South.

East Thurrock find themselves second from bottom in the division, with just two points separating them from the foot of the table, and their form needs to pick up soon if they are to beat the drop.

Rocks have picked up just four National League South wins all season, with all of them coming at Rookery Hill.

As a result, they will be happy to be on home turf once again tomorrow.

However, Dartford will prove to be a tough side to beat as they are only outside of the play-off places on goal difference.

Former Concord boss Adam Flanagan will be in the away dugout following his appointment as joint-manager of Dartford in the summer.
