The local club won 31-25 at Bancroft in the Shepherd Neame Essex Merit Table Division Three last weekend

May & Baker host Basildon’s second-team this weekend in the Shepherd Neame Essex Merit Table Division Three aiming to make it four league victories in a row.

After five games, Dagenham-based Bakers have 21 points and sit second in the table as a result and only eight off leaders Chingford’s threes.

Basildon have 14 points and are fifth after five games, but will come to Dagenham Road looking to spring a surprise.

Last time out, Bakers put in a fine display to come away with the points in a 31-25 win away to local side Bancroft.

In an up-and-down game, the visitors showed superb fight to come away with a bonus-point victory in Ilford.

Conner Wilson kicked two conversions and went over for a try himself as Bakers were able to grab four tries plus a penalty try.

Marc Kingshott crossed over for the away side with Lee Cardnell and Ronnie Zahra also grabbing tries in addition to the penalty try.

It made it three consecutive league wins for high-flying Bakers ahead of Saturday.
