HULLBRIDGE Sports will be looking to move one step closer to the Essex Senior League title when they visit West Essex tomorrow.

Sports are two points clear at the division's summit with just three fixtures remaining.

But Hullbridge boss Darren Manning knows his side will have to be at their best if they are to overcome an 11th-placed West Essex side who have scored 10 goals in their last two outings.

"We have three big games left," said Manning.

"If we do our job right and do what we have been doing all season then the title should be ours for the taking.

"But we know that West Essex are a top side and very difficult to beat.

"They are probably better than their league position suggests and they have good players like Michael Mignot, who has scored a hat-trick in each of his last t wo games."

Southend Manor, meanwhile, will welcome Sporting Bengal United to Southchurch Park tomorrow.

Manor have ensured their Essex Senior League safety by registering four wins in their last five outings.

However, chief Adam Peek knows the fine run of form will come under threat against Sporting Bengal United, who beat high-flying Walthamstow in midweek.

"We are probably playing them at the wrong time," conceded Peek.

"They got a good result in midweek and they have got their highest ever Essex Senior League points tally.

"It's always tough against them, but we're in good form."
