Clapton boss Jonny Fowell wants to make it six league wins in a row as they face Southend Manor this evening.

The Tons host the Essex Senior League strugglers at the Old Spotted Dog (7.45pm kick-off) and will be hoping to extend their run despite having a depleted squad.

Fowell’s men will be without Nathan Cook, Steven Sardinha and Tayo Adoweru and Jerry Jairette are doubts to miss the match.

“For us it’s all about winning our games with what we’ve got right now,” Fowell said.

“We’re down to our bare bones and we’re still winning which is a positive.

“We’re only seven points behind the leaders and we’ve done that without even putting the same team out all season so far.

“Other teams up there have been able to keep a consistent team together for most of their games.”

The manager admits three points are a must even though they’re facing Southend at possibly the worst time they could.

“Three points is a must and we want nothing less than that,” he said.

“We’re playing them at possibly the worse time as Stuart Marshall has just left so they’ve got a new manager and the players will be up for it as they will want to prove themselves.

“They’ll want to show they should be playing and that they want to play for the club, so they’ll be out to impress.”

Jay Morris, Dylan Ebengo and Nicholas Loblack could miss the match through suspensions.

“Jay is missing one, Dylan two and I believe Nick will be out for just one, but we’re awaiting confirmation on that.”
