Barking boss Justin Gardner believes his men have everything still to play for ahead of their clash with Tilbury.
The Blues welcome Joe Keith’s men to Mayesbrook Park this evening (7.45pm) as they look to finish the Bostik North campaign with a strong few results.
Gardner’s men currently sit ninth in the table and he wants them to push for at least an eighth place finish.
“I don’t like to use them words (nothing to play for) as it’s never true,” he said.
“We have the fans to play for, we have the club to play for, the chairman to play for and ourselves to play for.
“It’s another big game for us and we know it will be a tough one as Tilbury are on a little bit of a run right now.
“I think they’ve won four of their last five games.”
When the two sides met back in January the Blues ended 3-1 winners in the match at Chadfields thanks to a brace from Abs Seymour and a goal from Billy Jones.
“When we first played them it wasn’t the same team they have now as Joe Keith had only just come in.
“Now he has his own squad and they’re a good side.
“We’re also coming up against our old centre-back Hussain Jaffa.”
