Burgo is keen for a repeat performance from his side as they continue to eye the play-off places, and needing to bounce back from last weekend's heavy defeat at the hands of Royston.
Kick-off is 3.00 p.m. at Honeycroft, Horton Road, West Drayton, Middlesex UB7 8HX, which is here.

In the battle between two sides chasing the end-of-season Evo-Stik Southern League Central Division play-off places, Royston Town romped to victory by a 4-0 margin at Chestnut Avenue this afternoon, to inflict the Woods' biggest defeat of the campaign.
Royston led by three goals within the first half-hour; Niko Muir having failed for Northwood from the penalty spot in the first half, and the North Herts outfit added goal number four in the closing stages on a very disappointing afternoon for the Woods.
The match report and photos are here.

Northwood Chairman Ian Barry commented: “On behalf of myself and the committee, I'd like to thank everyone who took part in the draw to raise funds for the club, especially as the distribution of tickets was difficult due to the lack of games at the clubhouse during a very rainy December and January. A special thanks must go to Sarah Wheeler, who co-ordinated the sales and distribution to the youth teams.
“Having taken £1,584 in sales, with the first prize being deducted of £500, this means the draw raised the sum of £1,084. Of course, the club has many on-going bills, but with these types of fund-raisers, we do like to have something to show for the effort that everyone has made and we are hoping the funds we have set aside will pay for further improvements in the clubhouse, including sliding doors between the 2 main areas and if funds allow, some new flooring in the entrance hall and decoration.”
We would like to thank our draw sponsors from Ruislip Windows & Doors, who paid for the ticket printing and of course all of you who kindly donated prizes. Thanks to everyone for their support!
