Hanworth Villa are looking for three wins on the spin in all competitions this evening as they travel to Merton to face Tooting and Mitcham United. 

The Villains had to wait over a month for their first win of the season in the Isthmian League South Central, partly due to their cup exploits and partly due to drawing three and losing one of their opening four matches. 

However, after waiting so long for that first league win, they have come to life in the last week after following up a midweek FA Trophy win with their first league win against Thatcham Town, 3-2 at Rectory Meadow. 

After such a productive week they will be hoping to keep the good times rolling against 14th placed Tooting and Mitcham. 

Tooting themselves have only had the one league win, back in August against Guernsey and they haven't won at home in any competition so far this season. 

Kick-off in Merton at the Imperial Sports Ground is at 7:45 on Tuesday.

Kingstonian FC remain in search of a second league win of the season when they travel to face Bognor Regis Town this Wednesday. 

The K's have had a rare weekend break as they weren't in action in the FA Cup qualifying rounds, so have had eight days to prepare for this Isthmian League Premier Division clash. 

Kingstonian had been the draw specialists to start the season, drawing each of their opening four, but have gone away from that with a win against Carshalton Athletic followed by a defeat against Hastings United last Tuesday. 

This indifferent start has left them in 15th in the league, two places behind this week's opponents in Bognor Regis. 

Bognor were in action at the weekend, losing 2-0 to Hampton and Richmond Borough in the FA Cup second qualifying round, but prior to this the Rocks had been full of goals. 

In their previous three games, they had found the back of the net nine times even if they only managed to win one of those games, 4-0 against Cray Wanderers in the FA Cup first qualifying round. 

Kick-off at Nyewood Lane in West Sussex is at 7:45 on Wednesday.
