AFTER suffering three successive defeats, Barking will hoping for a marked improvement of their fortunes when they make the trip to second placed Enfield 1893 on Saturday.

Their opponents have been in outstanding form this season and have led the title race for much of the campaign, but two successive defeats to a rejuvenated Concord Rangers side have seen them lose their place at the top of the table and crash out of the Gordon Brasted Memorial Trophy.

However, they remain unbeaten at Wodson Park, the home of Ware FC, and of all the teams to have visited Enfield's adopted home, only Mauritius Sports & Pennant have managed even a draw.

It looks like being a tough task for Dave Ross' side to get anything out of the game, but their hopes of doing so will be boosted by the return of Victor Omobeghin from suspension.

Carl Paul, Sam Dennis and Chris Taylor all missed Saturday's defeat at Bowers & Pitsea but they will be hoping to be fit for the Enfield clash, with Steve Slade and Darren Coleman also looking to return after being unavailable at the weekend.
