CHELMSFORD v MAGPIES match preview

It's Monday night football for the Magpies tonight, just a few days after their 1-0 defeat to Bath on Saturday.

Chelmsford, the Clarets, also go into the clash at Melbourne Stadium on the back of a loss after they were beaten 4-2 by Eastbourne at the weekend.

The Clarets have just one win in their last seven in Skrill South and were beaten 2-1 by the Magpies at the Avenue earlier in the season.

There will be changes to the Magpies' team from Saturday with on-loan Torquay duo Nathan Craig and Ashley Yeoman today being recalled by their parent club.

Steve Walker and Dan Munday are unavailable but it looks like Clive Makoni has made the trip to Essex.

Dorchester are without a win in four but won three out of four before that.
