Hampton and Richmond Borough will be hoping to end a three-match losing streak as they face Chippenham Town in Vanarama National League South this evening.

Gary McCann's men have only won once this season, an emphatic 4-1 victory away at Tonbridge, but since then it has been a struggle for the Beavers as they have failed to take a single point from clashes with Havant and Waterlooville, Oxford City, and Slough Town.

But Hampton return to The Rocket Hospitality Beveree Stadium tonight against a Chippenham Town team who have won both of their last two.

The head-to-head record between the two sides favours the Beavers, as both sides shared the points in both games last season and Hampton did the double over the Bluebirds in the season prior.

Kick-off tonight is 7:45 at The Rocket Hospitality Beveree Stadium.

Elsewhere in the area, high-flying Hanwell Town are playing host to the Metropolitan Police in the Southern League Premier South at the Powerday Stadium tonight.

The Geordies have had a great start to their first ever season in step three, winning six of their first eight matches and sit fourth in the table.

By contrast, the Met Police have had a mixed start to the season, but Hanwell will have to contend with the free scoring Herson Rodrigues Alves, who has bagged six goals already this season.

Kick-off tonight is 7:45 at the Powerday Stadium.

In the Isthmian League Premier Division, Kingstonians travel to East Sussex to take on Hastings United as Hayden Bird looks to turn draws into wins.

Kingstonians are yet to lose this season, but had four consecutive draws before finally winning a game last time out against Carshalton Athletic.

Their hosts this evening have also won just the once, but they have tasted defeat on two occasions in a stuttering start to the season.

The Ks get underway at The Pilot Field at 7:45 this evening.

Hanworth Villa are also in action on the road and they will be hoping to put their league struggles behind them as their FA Trophy campaign begins against Northwood.

The Villains are yet to record a win in the league this season, having only been on the winning side against Chertsey Town in the FA Cup preliminary round.

Hanworth travel to Hillingdon tonight to take on Northwood and they couldn't have asked for a tougher task to put an end to their woes, as they face the Woods, who are top of their league and have won four from four in the Isthmian League Southern Central.

Kick-off at Northwood Park Stadium as the Villains begin their FA Trophy campaign is at 7:45 this evening.
