Clapton boss Jonny Fowell wants to start piling the pressure on the front-runners in the Essex Senior League.

The Tons will travel to second-place Hullbridge Sports this evening (7.45pm) as they look to make it back-to-back wins after sealing a 4-2 win against Leyton Athletic last week.

“We’ve got to go out there and start putting pressure on the teams around us,” Fowell said.

“Make no mistake they’re a very good team and for us we have to be at our best to get something from the match but we’re confident.”

Darren Manning’s side were the in-form side their last two fixtures when they’ve lost to Sawbridgeworth Town 2-1 and drawn 2-2 with Leyton Athletic.

Fowell says his side have been in that position before and bounced back so he will not be expecting to take advantage of that.

“We’ve been in that position, we have gone six games on the spin unbeaten then you lose and we’ve come back from that defeat we had against Stansted and I’m sure they can do the same.”

The former Enfield under-21s coach praised his side’s effort in their victory against Leyton and feels results going their way the night before played into their favour.

“The games the day before went for us, as Hullbridge, Walthamstow and Saffron Walden all picked up draws, so It gave us extra incentive to go out there and get a result.”

Before adding: “Leyton and Woodford Town are the best footballing sides we’ve played in the league, they play some good stuff and were hard to beat.”

The boss went on to praise all four of his side’s goals and praise the partnership between Ryan Reed and Jacob Kromman.

“Ryan Reed and Jacob have a really little partnership coming together up front which is pleasing.

“Sadly Jacob is away now for a few games with work and we’re missing one or two others.”
