Town face the trip to Chestnut Avenue tonight to play Dave Anderson's Northwood team who are currently sitting with 17 points winning 5 drawing 2 and loosing 4 of their 11 league games to date.

Out of The Woods home fixtures they have lost 1-0 both to Thamesmead Town and Concord Rangers, beating VCD Atheltic (2-0), Ware (6-0) and drawn 0-0 with Tilbury. Away from home they have lost at Lowestoft Town (3-0) and Redbridge (3-1).

In the FA Cup they went out at Wingate and Finchley in a First Round replay and face Evesham United in the FA Trophy on Saturday after overcoming Abingdon United in the first round.

Top scorers this season so far are Garry Senior and young Portuguese striker Hugo Figueredo with 4 goals each. They also include in their squad ex Leverstock Green Midfielder Anthony Page, Well travelled Eugen Ofori (Hendon, Braintree Town, Heybridge Swifts, Chesham United and Boreham Wood), ex Wealdstone stopper Mitch Swain, Central Defender Michael Peacock who has played for North Greenford United and AFC Wimbledon and forward Leon Osei who had played for Winchester City.

Dave Anderson has managed Hendon, AFC Wimbledon and St Albans City and will be looking to get three points tonight to move his team closer to the play-off zone.

However, Steve & Del with the rest of the Town squad will be looking to wipe out the memory of the 0-4 defeat against East Thurrock United on Saturday. This is just the sort of game the team need, It's never easy against Northwood but the cold end is sure three points can be gained tonight in what will be a hard fought victory.

Last year in the 2nd game of the season Northwood thrashed Enfield Town on the 19th August 2008 with Eric Pudaloff picking the ball out of his net 4 times with town drawing a blank.

Town always seem to play better away from home and are unbeaten on their travels in the league in six games and last lost at Waltham Abbey on the 13th April 2009 (1-0).
