ELY City will be looking to carry some winning momentum into the weekend's clash with Tiptree United as they battle to stay clear of the drop-zone.

Buoyed by the midweek victory over rivals Soham Town Rangers, the Robins will be keen to pick up their first back-to-back wins since December against a strong Tiptree side.

Although they currently sit in ninth place in the Ridgeons Premier, Tiptree have not played since January 31 and come into the game on the back of two defeats in their last three. Ely meanwhile, will be going in search of their first league win since their 1-0 triumph away at Walsham-le-Willows last month.

A victory for the Robins would move them onto 27 points and give them a 15 point cushion over bottom side Haverhill, who the Robins face away on Tuesday 24.
