POTTERS Bar Town will be looking to complete a league double on Saturday when they travel to Aveley.

In December the Scholars secured a 4-2 home win over the Millers.

It was a particularly sweet victory for Bar boss Steve Browne as it was against the club he managed last season.

Striker Sam Adejokun hit a brace and further goals from Precious Koko and Junior Dadson guided the Scholars to that win.

Aveley are currently on a nine-game unbeaten run, so will provide a stern test for Browne and his men at the weekend.

That streak of results includes a fine 3-0 win over promotion-chasing Redbridge and a 1-1 draw with third-placed Ware.

The Parkfield club will be hoping their 1-1 draw away at Northwood last Saturday will signal a change in fortunes for them.

That result came on the back of four straight defeats in which Bar had failed to score a single goal.

Winger Junior Dadson's 55th-minute leveller was Bar's first goal in more than 415 minutes of football.

It was a team performance on Saturday in which the Scholars could have nicked a win, but both sides in the end settled for a point.

There were three new faces in the away side's starting 11 at Northwood.

The most notable was that of goalkeeper Tope Okeowo, who replaced regular stopper Ashlee Jones between the sticks.

Other debutants included midfielder Fred Okyere and forward Richard Worrell.

Worrell managed just 45 minutes as a lone striker before he was replaced at the break by Sam Adejokun.

In terms of the league table, several results went in Potters Bar's favour at the weekend.

Although third from bottom, Tilbury enjoyed a 2-1 home win over Wingate & Finchley, basement pair Ilford and Wivenhoe Town shared a goalless draw. The team a place behind Bar, Waltham Forest, lost 5-3 to Maldon Town.

Browne and his men still need to keep collecting points to ensure they are not in the bottom two at the end of April.
