Gale Street club beaten 50-5 at home to Deal last weekend

Barking continue their quest for a first win of the season in London Two South East when they make the trip to Hove this weekend.

The Gale Street club are without a success this campaign having lost each of their 15 league games so far.

Last weekend saw Andrew Moreland’s side go down 50-5 at home to Deal, scoring their first try of the calendar year.

It was a result, though, that saw relegation from the league mathematically confirmed for Barking, who are 39 points adrift of safety with just 35 points left to play for.

With the drop to London Three for next season now confirmed, the Gale Street club will hope to play with more freedom over the course of the rest of the campaign.

When Barking hosted Hove earlier in the campaign, Moreland’s men were on the wrong side of an 81-10 scoreline at their Gale Street base.

They will hope it is a much closer game this time around on the Sussex coast.
