BOWERS & Pitsea, Hullbridge Sports, Basildon United, Canvey Island, Billericay Town, East Thurrock United and Great Wakering Rovers will be eager to pick up positive results when they return to action tonight.

Bowers will do battle with Corinthian-Casuals for the second time in quick succession.

The reverse fixture only took place on Saturday, with Rob Small’s side registering a narrow 1-0 win on their travels.

Brad Warner grabbed what proved to be the only goal of the contest on the stroke of half-time.

Bowers are 15th in the Isthmian Premier League standings, but three points against the division’s second-from-bottom side would see them move up two places.

Hullbridge are also at home this evening, with them preparing to welcome Isthmian North high-flyers Bury Town to the Ryan’s Heating Stadium.

A win would allow Darren Manning’s outfit to consolidate themselves in 12th spot.

Alex Salmon’s is due to take charge of Basildon for the first time when they head to Soham Town Rangers for an Isthmian North fixture, while Canvey will visit Witham Town.

Billericay are vying for a place in the Essex Senior Cup semi-finals when they host Grays Athletic at New Lodge.

East Thurrock will be looking to progress in the Isthmian League Cup when they welcome Cheshunt to the Grayers Graphics Stadium.

Great Wakering Rovers will host Chelmsford City in a friendly at Burroughs Park.

Danny Scopes’ Concord Rangers were due to make the long trip to Bath City for their FA Trophy second round replay.

The tie was due to take place seven days ago but, following the Beach Boys’ arrival at Twerton Park, the match was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

And the rearranged clash was postponed once again last night due to a waterlogged pitch.

The Beach Boys have never reached the third round of the competition and will welcome Leamington to the Aspect Arena should they progress.

However, when the tie does go ahead, Concord face a tough task against National League South rivals Bath, who are flying high in the standings.

The original meeting finished 1-1, with Aron Pollock’s opener cancelled out by Tom Smith.
