The Ambers travel to Parkside Stadium in Aveley on Tuesday evening to face Concord Rangers. The match away at the Essex side has been rescheduled on multiple occasions but it looks certain to go ahead this time due to the change of venue.

The Hosts- Concord Rangers

 Concord Rangers sit one place and three points behind Cheshunt in the league table. However, due to the pitch issues at The Aspect Arena over the winter period, the club have only played 26 games, four less than Cheshunt and six less than other relegation candidates Margate and Haringey Borough.

The Beach Boys have been in a very inconsistent run over form in recent weeks with a win, a draw and three loses in their last five fixtures. Their most recent fixture was a 3-0 defeat at home to Hornchurch. A hattrick from Femi Akinwande was the difference between the two sides. They earned a huge three points last Tuesday as they defeated promotion contenders Billericay Town at The Aspect Arena. A brace from Harrison Day including a late winner gave them their first win in five.

Harrison Day has been the Beach Boys star man this season, scoring 14 goals in all competitions including 10 in the league. Mason Terry has spent the 23/24 season on loan at Concord Rangers. He and Cheshunt defender Billy bates were teammates in the Hammers’ youth teams and both signed their professional contracts at the same time.

 The Visitors- Cheshunt

 Cheshunt come into this game off the back of a postponed match at Theobalds Lane against Folkestone Invicta. However, in the expectation of it being called off the Ambers played a friendly against Potters Bar Town. Craig Edwards’ side came out 1-0 winners on the 3G pitch at Theobalds Lane. The only goal came from Thomas Mendes who has scored 6 goals in 4 games for FC Romania recently.

In other news, Solomon Baugh left the club this week after a very decent short spell at the club.  He made 15 league appearances for the Ambers this season. Assistant manager Ugo Udoji has also moved onto explore other opportunities.

Cheshunt were dealt a huge late blow on Wednesday evening as a late strike from Eddie Dsane cancelled out a first half strike from Nnamdi Nwachuku. The team were completely dominant at Imperial Fields having multiple big chances, especially in the first half. However, they were only able to find the back of the net on one occasion which allowed Tutu Henriques’ side to find a late equaliser.

Jamie Reynolds’ suspension has been served so the midfielder is eligible to make a return to the squad this evening. He will give the side a much-needed boost ahead of this crucial fixture. He played 70 minutes in the friendly against Potters Bar Town.
