AFC Hornchurch welcome Bury Town in what will be our 9th competitive fixture against the Suffolk side.
Both sides have started their 2013/14 season well with Hornchurch currently lying in 6th place whilst Bury are 4 places lower. Bury though are unbeaten to date having drawn at East Thurrock United and at home to Hampton & Richmond and beaten Harrow Borough at Ram Meadow. Hornchurch lost their opening fixture to Lewes but bounced back with victories at Margate and Cray Wanderers.
Hornchurch will still be without Martin Tuohy as he recovers from his knee injury and also Tambeson Eyong who serves his fourth game of a five match ban.
