Mark Bentley takes his table topping Grays Athletic to Thames side rivals Canvey Island. Grays won at second placed Leiston on Saturday with striker Dumebi Dumaka scoring another double as his great start to the season continues. The two sides have met twice already this season and Grays will be looking to do a treble over their hosts. In the League Cup, Blues won a penalty shoot out to progress after a 2-2 draw with the Grays goals coming from a James Stevens free kick and an own goal. Just 8 days later the sides met at Mill Field in the league and Grays achieved a 2-0 victory with Dumebi Dumaka scoring the first and another own goal, this time by ex Grays hero Glenn Poole. Canvey have bounced back well from this defeat by winning every game since. Enfield (2-0), local rivals Billericay (3-0) and Hendon (3-2) have all been beaten as the Gulls have risen to 10th position in the early season league table. Canvey Island's top scorer this season has been Martin Tuohy. He has 6 goals while Dumaka for Grays currently has 8. Blues fans making the short journey have been issued a call to arms and urged to congregate together and get behind Bentley's young squad and help them maintain their recent good run against our "nemesis" and also this good start to the season so far.
