Hemel Hempstead Town will be out for revenge when they take on Chelmsford City at Vauxhall Road on Saturday.

The Tudors were beaten 4-0 by Chelmsford in the reverse fixture earlier this season, but Dean Brennan’s side go into the game as favourites to get the better of the Clarets this time around.

Hemel line up for the match on the back of two consecutive draws, having been pegged back by Farnborough on Saturday and Wealdstone on Tuesday night.

Those two points were enough to see the Tudors move to within one point of Chelmsford in the Vanarama Conference South table, with the Clarets having lost to Concord Rangers and Maidenhead United in their previous two fixtures.

Hemel have two games in hand on Saturday’s opponents, and a victory for Brennan’s men would be a significant boost to their playoff aspirations.

The Tudors currently find themselves in eighth position in the table, six points adrift of a playoff spot but with games in hand on a number of the teams sitting above them.

The bookmakers have Hemel priced at odds of around 19/20 to win the game, while Chelmsford are on offer in the region of 2/1.

The match kicks-off at 3pm at Vauxhall Road, and more information can be found at hemelfc.com
