Hemel Hempstead Town will be looking to take their cup form into the league when the Tudors host high-flying Ebbsfleet at Vauxhall Road tomorrow.

Dean Brennan’s side go into the game on the back of a 5-0 victory over Chippenham Town in the FA Cup, and the Tudors boss will be urging his players to pick up where they left off.

“Ebbsfleet are one of the title favourites, and they have super serious ambitions,” said Brennan. “They lost at home to Basingstoke on Saturday in the cup and I’m sure they will be looking to respond after that defeat.

“We will have to be at our best to make sure we pick up the points. It’s another very important game for us and it’s another big test for our team – one we are really looking forward to.”

Ebbsfleet are the bookies’ favourites to lift the Conference South title, while Hemel have been struggling for form in the league this season and currently occupy 19th position in the league table.

Tomorrow’s game is the first time that the two teams have met, although Ebbsfleet will fancy their chances of taking the points as they are sitting fourth in the league table and are on a four-game unbeaten – keeping clean sheets in all four of those games.
