EAST THURROCK get the red flag today with four losses from four to open their campaign. It's no surprise considering their drop-off toward the end of last season (losing 7 of their last 10 games).
Take last year's form into play and that’s 10 straight losses. Gloucester haven’t fared much better but do have a win to their name.
Their only two goals have come in each of their home games and I fancy them to pick up their first team double of the season against Thurrock who have conceded 2+ in both road games.
Thurrock finished 15th out of a possible 22 last season. Whitehawk, a now relegated side conceded 89 goals, with Thurrock coming in 2nd as the worst defence with 84 goals yielded (conceded the most on the road with 52, while Whitehawk were 2nd worst with 48).
They let in 2+ in 15 of their 22 games last year and have already started the same way this season. Long may it continue.
