On Tuesday night we travel to Cressing Road to take on National League side Braintree Town in the BBC Essex Senior Cup 3rd Round, kick off at 19:45.

The Iron are currently bottom of the table and come into this match following a 2-1 defeat at home to Eastleigh on Saturday.

This will be our 20th competitive match against Braintree, with our record to date reading P 19, W 11, D 3, L 5, F 43, A 27. We have met three times before in the Essex Senior Cup, winning on one occasion and losing on the other two. In 2005 we were beaten 2-0 in the 4th round at Cressing Road, and then four years later we lost 3-1 at the same venue with our goal scored by James Rowe.

Our last meeting came at this stage of the competition in 2012 when goals from Rob King, Robbie Blackwell, Mitchell Gilbey, Louis Dennis, Rickie Hayles and Bradley Woods-Garness earned us a 6-2 victory at The Frost Hire Stadium.

Admission is priced at £7.00 Adults, £5.00 Concessions and £3.00 Under-18's.
