Surbiton Men travel to East Grinstead for an evening match at Saint Hill (push back 6 pm) on Saturday.
After a 3-1 home win over Wimbledon on the opening weekend, Surbiton were held to a 1-1 draw by newly promoted University of Exeter last Saturday to drop to fourth in the Men’s Hockey League Premier Division.
Surbiton will be aiming to get back to winning ways against an East Grinstead side which won 4-1 at Exeter and then lost at home 3-1 to Beeston. Chris Griffiths scored twice in Devon alongside former Surbiton player Liam Ansell and David Condon, but East Grinstead could only muster a penalty corner conversion from Simon Faulkner against Beeston.
