EAST Thurrock United will ramp up their pre-season preparations when they visit Aveley tomorrow.

Rocks’ Isthmian Premier League campaign gets underway next weekend and so boss John Coventry will be keen to see his side impress at Parkside.

However, the Millers will pose a threat as they are among the favourites to win promotion from the Isthmian North after missing out through the play-offs last term.

East Thurrock were without a friendly in midweek after their proposed trip to Chalfont St Peter was postponed due to too many Rocks players being unavailable.

Rocks beat Great Wakering Rovers 1-0 last weekend.
