Currently sitting in 17th, the visitors are one place below Hampton & Richmond in the National League South.

The Hamlet, who have gone three games without a win, have so far struggled to capitalise on the high of moving back to their home at Champion Hill.

Top scorers Nyren Clunis and Dipo Akinyemi have six apiece so far this season but a constantly rotated side has meant both have struggled for consistent minutes of late.

The Beavers go into Saturday’s game on a run of five successive defeats, having not won since the 2-1 win over Welling on December 15, enduring a series of tough games against top opposition over the Christmas period.

After an improved performance against Chelmsford last week, the Beavers will be looking to get their season back on track and deliver a repeat of when they met the Hamlet earlier this season.

In the reverse fixture, a dominant Beavers took the lead through a well worked ball into the box which allowed Craig Dundas to score on the turn from close range.

Chris Dickson then doubled the lead shortly after the break with a calmly taken penalty to register a solid 2-0 victory for the Beavers taking them to fifth in the league at the time.

Both sides will be looking to rediscover some form on Saturday in what promises to be a well contested fixture, with Gary McCann hoping to do the double to get revenge on the side who beat his former club, Hendon, on penalties in last year’s Isthmian League Premier Division play-off final.
