WITH top two Potters Bar and Hornchurch meeting today (Saturday, 26 November), third-placed Aveley will be hoping to cement their Isthmian Premier promotion credentials with a win against Kingstonian at Parkside (3pm).
The Millers faltered in their last league outing, losing 2-1 at Bowers and Pitsea, and also bowed out of the Essex Senior Cup in midweek, albeit on penalties after a hard-fought normal time draw at National League South Concord Rangers.

Hullbridge have lacked consistency, pulling off a couple of impresive wins but struggling more often than not and they are 16th, seven places behind Grays.
Game of the day in the division could be at Rookery Hill, where East Thurrock United entertain high-flying Lowestoft Town who are second.
The visitors made an imperious start to the season and went until 15 October before dropping a point. By way of a reminder for Grays not to be complacement, that match was at Hullbridge Sports!
East Thurrock, buoyed by a midweek Essex Senior Cup win at Tilbury, will be looking to translate their excellent away form to their home turf, where they went down 4-0 lkast time out to struggling Maldon & Tiptree.
It would be a brave forecaster who predicts the outcome of today's match.
Tilbury will be looking to lift their heads after the cup defeat and get their league season back on track after a series of disappointing results.
The outcome of matches has not always reflected the Dockers' endeavour as they have slipped down the table.
Manager John Coventry will be hoping for no slips today as he takes his side to Crown Meadow in Lowestoft for a meeting with the Trawlerboys' tenants Gorleston, who are second bottom and have already lost 11 times on their
