ELY City travel to Tiptree United on Saturday looking to become one of the only clubs to complete a league double over the Essex side.

The last time the two sides met, Ely picked up a somewhat unexpected 2-0 win which kick-started their move away from the lower reaches of the league and threw a spanner into the works of Tiptree's promotion bid.

Coming into this game, Ely find themselves all but secure for the season in 14th place and are also in something of a purple patch having picked up three wins in their last five.

Tiptree meanwhile, are in indifferent form with two losses in their last four games making them an unpredictable prospect.

Denis Lightining will be boosted however, by the news that he has no fresh injury concerns arising from last week's game at Leiston and will also be able to call on Robbie Mason who is nearing full fitness following an ankle injury.
