Blues will look to extend their winning run to seven games when they host Brightlingsea Regent on Easter Monday, kick-off 3pm.
Saturday’s victors at Lewes lifted them up to fifth spot in the Bostik Premier, and wins from their final two games should seal a place in the play-offs.
The game will also see Jamie Cureton celebrate his 1000th senior appearance, with the club making a presentation to the veteran striker before the game.
Essex Leopards v Nottingham Hoods, 13th Oct 2018Brightlingsea’s second season in the third tier of non-league football has seen a steady campaign and they damaged Leatherhead’s play-off hopes on Saturday with a 1-0 home win. They will arrive at the home on football sitting in 14th place with 56 points from 40 games.
Their FA Cup campaign saw a win at Cambridge City before a home replay victory against Egham Town before big-spending Torquay United won 3-0 at Taydal Stadium in the third qualifiying round.
Single goal wins against Canvey Island and AFC Hornchurch saw they through to the final qualifying round of the FA Trophy where they lost a home replay against Hayes & Yeading United.
Regent will be making their first trip to Stortford. The sides met just after Christmas and Blues produced one of their worst performances of the campaign as they went down 1-0.
