GARRY Kimble knows Great Wakering Rovers will need to be at their best if they are to pick up a positive result against Maldon & Tiptree.

The high-flying Jammers, who are third in the Isthmian North and have set themselves a target of winning promotion, make the trip to Burroughs Park tomorrow.

And Wakering boss Kimble is hoping for an improved performance after suffering a 4-1 defeat to Bowers & Pitsea last time out.

“It’s going to be a really tough game,” said Kimble.

“They will be the favourites to beat us and they have some good players.

“Maldon will be hungry for three points and smarting after losing to Witham Town last weekend.

“They’ll be wanting to put that right.”

Although Wakering are 14th in the standings, the reigning Essex Senior League champions boast one of the best home records in the Isthmian North.

Wakering have only been beaten twice in their first 10 fixtures on home soil and Kimble wants his side’s good form at Burroughs Park to continue.

“We raise our game when we are at home,” added Kimble.

“Hopefully we will do the same this weekend and we have beaten good sides like Heybridge, where we played ever so well.

“We will take confidence from our home form.”
