The Old Spotted Dog have suffered a frustrating 1-0 defeat at home to Woodford Town (2017) last weekend

Hackney Wick will look to end their poor run when they host fellow Essex Senior League strugglers Burnham Ramblers tonight (Wednesday).

The Old Spotted Dog club, who sit third bottom in the table with 13 points, take on 22nd-placed Ramblers, who are directly below them.

Both clubs have 13 points and four wins and one draw to their name in the division this season, but the pair will be desperate to pick up a victory tonight.

Wick go into it off the back of a 1-0 loss at home to Woodford Town (2017) last weekend – a disappointing result for the local side, which stretched their losing streak to three games since the start of the month.

After hosting Burnham, the Old Spotted Dog outfit will visit Towers Hamlets on Friday for a 7.45pm kick-off.

It means Wick will have little time to recover, but if they can pick up all three points tonight, they’ll relish playing at the Mile End Stadium two days later.
