Bostik Division North
Grays Athletic v Aveley
GRAYS Athletic take on promotion-chasing Aveley at Parkside tonight.
This could be seen as a pivotal game in the season for both teams.
Grays Ath are sitting in ninth place, seven points off the play offs. There are plenty of games still to play, seventeen in fact but you get the feeling that the Blues, with four defeats in the last eight matches, now need to string a number of victories together.
They could do well to look at Witham Town, who beat them on Saturday. As the final whistle went, the Witham players collapsed in a heat, like exhausted marathon runners. Grays noticed it and in no uncertain terms pointed it out. Witham have won six of their last eight games.
Aveley have won six of their last ten games and are sitting in a key place. They are fourth in the league, seven points behind the league leaders, with two games in hand.
Should be a fascinating match.
7.45pm kick off.
