Coggeshall Town are next up at Parkside in a Bostik league fixture, a club part owned by Olly Murs. Earlier in the season in the first ever meeting between the clubs Blues suffered a 4-0 reverse in a game that typified their season, a competent first half , and a lacklustre second. No doubt Blues will be looking to avenge that defeat.
The seedmen have made an impressive debut in their first season at the higher level currently lying in fifth place on 40 points seven below the other play off chasing clubs. A steady start saw them challenging near the top of the table boosted by a run of seven games undefeated through the Autumn period. Results have tailed off since then, their last two fixtures yielding just the one point after an away defeat to title favourites Bowers & Pitsea and a 1-1 home draw to bottom club Dereham Town. Current leading league goal scorer is Sam Bantick with eleven goals.Two ex Coggeshall men who will certainly be looking to make an impression are Kieran Bishop and recently signed Correy Davidson.
Blues will be smarting after last weeks disappointing defeat at Canvey when two soft goals contributed to their downfall, a late rally failing to produce a goal. Blues will be boosted by the signing of fans favourite Correy Davidson returning for his third spell with the club he will certainly add pace to an already lively Blues strike force.
