The Bulls travel to Grays for a Conference match for the first time. The early season 2-0 loss to Grays at Edgar Street was a signal for a misfiring Bulls side, while Grays went off like a rocket with 15 matches unbeaten, but have now recorded just one win in six - dropping 15 points on current leaders Accrington, and nine on the Bulls.
The Bulls protect a record of two losses in 20, and an unbeaten 10 game run stretching eight weeks. The size of the squad remains a worry, with manager Graham Turner struggling for bodies to fill the subs bench at times. Promises of new signings have so far come to nothing and the supporters are getting impatient, fearing the window will slam shut before new faces arrive.
Grays have had no problem signing new players, signing three new defenders to shore up an often overwhelmed defence. One player not to have signed up for Grays is Darren Blewitt, who was strongly rumoured to have signed when his spell at Edgar Street ended but has failed to materialise.
