Wealdstone will be hoping to return to winning ways and maintain their unbeaten away record this season when they visit Canvey Island on Saturday, writes Ashley Birch.

The league leaders have not played this month due to the weather conditions but will be determined to put right their last match where they lost for only the second time in the campaign.

On that day the Stones were beaten 2-1 by Hampton and Richmond, who themselves will welcome Carshalton Athletic to the Beveree Stadium.

The Beavers will be looking to earn their third straight victory against a struggling Carshalton team, who only have one league win to their name since September.

The Beavers are going for their third straight victory against a side with only one Ryman Premier victory to their name since September.
