So the first of six local derbies kicks off on Tuesday night with us making the short trip to the Saffrons to take on Eastbourne Town. Both teams opened there accounts with a draw, us with a 2-2 draw against Saltdean United, while Town had 1-1 at East Preston.
Though the Wanderers fear no one we certainly go into this tie as underdogs, big spending Town are amongst the favourites to go up this season so it will be stern test of our credentials. Early season results aren't always a good indicator as teams look to gel after the summer break, but we will be hoping we can catch Town slightly off form and grab a result which we are more than capable of.
Town maybe missed both Arron Capon and Evan Archibald's fire power up front against East Preston so it'll be interesting to see if this changes against the Wanderers. What ever happens we go into this fixture knowing we can compete at this level after Saturdays result and go and cause a shock under the Saffrons floodlights.
