East Thurrock Are Unbeaten And Ready For Fellow Joint Leaders

They scored 11 goals in two games against them last season but John Coventry knows East Thurrock's mission this afternoon is going to be ten times tougher against Truro City.

A 6-0 and 5-1 success last season had the Rocks rolling in their first Vanarama National League South campaign.

There is no sign of second season syndrome - and later on today two of the league's four joint leaders lock horns.

Coventry knows Truro, who also have 22 points on the board, will be a much harder nut to crack one season on.

"It's a totally different situation this time around," accepts the long serving East Thurrock manager.

"Truro have surprised a lot of people because they struggled a little bit last year but they are up there on merit this time around.

"There's not much chance of a repeat of our big wins last year but it should be a brilliant game and it's one we are looking forward to."

East Thurrock are unbeaten this season and Coventry wants it to stay that way for as long as possible.

Not only do they face one joint leader in the next few days, they face two.

"It's St Albans City on Tuesday who are fourth but on the same points so it's fair to say it's a big period for us.

"We are really proud of what we have done so far but we've achieved nothing yet."
