Lowestoft Town travel to Essex tonight for a rearranged Ryman Premier Division clash at Billericay Town.

The Trawlerboys were left frustrated last Tuesday night after Billericay club officials had encouraged them to travel for the game, after the match referee had declared the pitch playable.

Joint manager Ady Gallagher said: 'Their chairman made a couple of misleading comments which intimated we got the ref to call off the game but I think that was just a distraction tactic because they had two teams travel down in three days and the pitch was unplayable.

'There was no way the game was safe to go ahead and no doubt that the referee made the right decision. It was worst pitch that I have ever seen that someone has expected to be played on and I wasn't alone, a lot of the players thought the same.'

Goals from Manny Osei and Robert Eagle saw Gallagher's side to a 2-0 win at Lewes on Saturday and he hopes to see another strong performance tonight.

'It was a good response on Saturday after a poor performance (losing 2-0 at home against Cray Wanderers),' Gallagher added.

'We are learning together and the way of proving that is by putting in really hard working performances and getting a level of consistency in our play. If we are ready to fight then we will have a fighting chance against anyone in this league, because we have the quality.'
