BILLERICAY Town will be hoping to banish their demons from the final day of last season when they do battle with Bath City tomorrow.

A 2-0 defeat to Bath resulted in Billericay missing out on a National League South play-off place at the final hurdle.

And boss Harry Wheeler insists the defeat is still at the forefront of his memory.

Wheeler, whose Billericay side are targeting promotion to the top tier of non-league football this term, said: “Bath are a great footballing side who move the ball really well.

“They control a lot of games, so it’s up to us to find the weaknesses and pick up on them.

“We have to be better than we were in the final game of last season against them.

“We haven’t forgotten about that.

“The lads have got to stick to their task and do their job on the day.

“We have another good manager (Jerry Gill) coming down who plays in a really good manner.

“We’ll have to be on it and be at our best, but we know that our home record is good.

“It’s a hard place for people to come and we will make it hard for Bath.”

Billericay will go head-to-head with Bath at the Steel Team Stadium this weekend.

And, having made their home a fortress so far this term, Town will be eager to maintain their 100 per cent winning record at the Steel Team Stadium.

Billericay have recorded last gasp wins over Eastbourne Borough, Welling United and St Albans City - all courtesy of late Jake Robinson strikes - while they also got the better of Hungerford Town.

Wheeler’s side will also be full of confidence after coming from behind to draw 1-1 with Essex rivals Chelmsford City earlier this week despite being behind when right-back Louis Ramsay was given his marching orders at the Melbourne Community Stadium.

And Wheeler is hoping to capitalise on the hard-earned point.

“We need to win our home games, which we have because we have won four out of four so far,” added Wheeler.

“But we also need to get big points away and that is what we were talking about in pre-season.

“We need to take points when we are away from home whenever we can.

“When you go down to 10 men and are 1-0 down away to a team who are unbeaten on their own patch, it’s a great point.”

Ramsay will be available for selection tomorrow despite his red card on Monday.
