EAST Thurrock United boss John Coventry insists his focus is solely on tomorrow’s trip to Wealdstone and not next week’s Essex Senior Cup final.

The Rocks, who remain in the National League South relegation zone, will visit a Wealdstone side who are just two points adrift of the play-off places.

And, although his side will travel to Colchester United’s JobServe Community Stadium to face Chelmsford City in the Essex Senior Cup final three days later, Coventry says his squad will have their sights set on climbing out of the division’s bottom three.

“I only ever look at one game at a time, so next week’s Essex Senior Cup final has not even come into my thinking,” said Coventry.

“The same goes for the players and they will have all of their focus on beating Wealdstone this weekend.

“The Essex Senior Cup final doesn’t involve some of the squad at the moment because they are cup-tied anyway.

“We don’t carry a big squad and that has been a bit of a problem with the Essex Senior Cup, but we will only be thinking about that after the game with Wealdstone.”

East Thurrock currently possess the worst away record in the National League South, having accumulated just eight points from a possible 54.

However, Wealdstone have won just seven of their 18 home fixtures and Coventry knows his side could climb out of the drop zone with a victory.

“Wealdstone is a difficult place to go and we’ve always found it difficult there,” added the Rocks chief.

“They are trying to keep in touch with the play-off places and break into them by the end of the season, but we have our own aim and that is to get out of the relegation zone.

“I know they did well despite losing 3-2 at Torquay United last week, but their home record is not great and I am looking at that for a bit of encouragement.

“Both teams have something to play for and I prefer that because it gives the game an edge.

“There will be a bit of fear in both sides because of not wanting to make a mistake, but we will be going there for the win.”

Coventry will be able to call upon Ibrahim Sori-Diallo after the left-back completed his one-match suspension.
